European aquaculture governance contains elements of the three main modes of governance: 1) hierarchical; 2) market; and 3) participative. This chapter focuses on the participative mode, both because it is the dominant mode, and because it offers a better prospect for the future of the aquaculture industry than either of the other two modes. There are two distinct forms of stakeholder participation: a) self-regulation, where participation is largely confined to the industry; and b) Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM), where participation is (ideally) shared by all stakeholders. In this chapter, both forms of stakeholder participation are explained and evaluated, and the conclusion is drawn that the future of European aquaculture governance lies in strengthening the element of ICZM relative to the element of self-regulation
