The  Blue Bioeconomy Forum (BBF) is an initiative of the European Commission to boost the development of the blue bio-economy in Europe. 


It will serve to partners from all areas be it  public, private, research or finance to shape  the future of this promising area using aquatic biomass as a source for value added products such as food, feed, bio-based products and bioenergy. 


The scope of Forum, however, does not cover “traditional” uses of biomass, such as fishing. 

The BBF focuses on novel applications, including non-food, waste/discards, feed and food.

What is an Intergroup?

The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup is one of the 28 Intergroups that were approved on 11 December 2014 by the Conference of Presidents. Intergroups can be formed by MEPs from any political group and any parliamentary committee with a view to holding informal exchanges of views on particular issues and to promoting contact between MEPs and civil society.

The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup brings together more than 80 MEPs from six different political groups and from 19 Member States.

Intergroups are not Parliament bodies and therefore may not express Parliament's opinion.

Intergroups are subject to internal rules adopted by the Conference of Presidents on 16 December 1999 (last updated on 11 September 2014), which set out the conditions under which intergroups may be established at the beginning of each parliamentary term and their operating rules.
