The A.P.I., a non-profit corporation, aims to protect, develop and consolidate all activities related to fish-breeding both in fresh and in salt and brackish waters. Consequently, it promotes any financial, scientific, technical, insurance, professional, union and legal interventions which may prove necessary to reach this target. The assistance in the financial sector intends to meet the fish breeders' requirements regarding any possibilities to optimise their own resources and any opportunities of obtaining public financing.
The interest of A.P.I. in the scientific section is realised through a collaboration with various Scientific Institutions in order to widen its knowledge and make it available to the fish-breeding plants, both as far as the technological innovations and the veterinary assistance supplied to the associates. Qualified and professional consultants are essential for the Associazione Piscicoltori Italiani in order to provide the associates with a suitable assistance. In the union and legal field, A.P.I. aims to establish a close relation with Local institutions and bodies competent in aquaculture harmonising institutional requirements with the breeders' needs.
