The ECOAQUA institute is highlighted in the Guide of good sustainable practices in the Canary Islands gastronomy

The Research Institute for Sustainable Aquaculture and Marine Ecosystems (ECOAQUA) of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, has been featured in the ‘Guide of good sustainable practices in the Canary Islands gastronomy’, which the Government of the Canary Islands, through the General Directorate for Research and Coordination of Sustainable Development, an area attached to the Presidency of the Government, has just released last June 18.

This document represents a first landing exercise of the Canary Islands Agenda 2030 in the different links of the value chain that comprise gastronomy in the archipelago. It is an embryonic exercise, which aims to be improved and expanded over the next few years.

The Guide of good practices has identified close to 150 concrete actions, among which is the ECOAQUA success story, which can serve as inspiration for other people and organizations to commit to the SDGs, principles, values and goals of the Canary Islands 2030 Agenda.

The introduction to ECOAQUA is cited on page 94 of the Guide, which highlights its contribution, more specifically, to SDGs 9 and 14, which deal, respectively, with the sustainable development of infrastructure, i.e. the importance of building resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and fostering innovation; and secondly, conserving and sustainably using oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.


The mention of the ULPGC university institute praises its contribution to research, its commitment to innovation and its work in postgraduate training in sustainable aquaculture is, as well as its work to promote the conservation and sustainable use of marine and coastal resources.

The Multi-Stakeholder Platform of the 2030 Canary Islands Agenda has, among other resources, a form to record those good practices or projects that are understood to be aligned with sustainability.
