Aquaculture Production and Employment Survey

BIM conducts an annual survey in which all aquaculture companies are requested to submit economic and operational details for the year.

The data is grouped by species and submitted to the EU in aggregated format so your company or you as an individual cannot be identified. The information collected helps to inform European aquaculture policy. 

How do we collect the data?
The 2019 data is collected for each species in the following survey forms:

Form A
Aquaculture Census Survey 2019 (pdf 905kb)

Form B‌
