EMODnet (European Marine Observation and Data Network) is a platform developed by EU to help professionals and citizens who "operate" in sea, as well as public authorities and researchers, so to have information on many aspects of the marine environment, such as depth, biology, chemistry, geology, human activities, physics, biodiversity and seabed ecosystems.

One of the sectors that has an absolute and constant need for reliable elements of the marine environment is aquaculture.

In this context, EU created a video to promote EMODnet to aquaculture operators. The video also features the President of APC s.a. Nikos Anagnopoulos, who is a member of the EMODnet experts development team, regarding the aquaculture sector.
