Italy, a European country with a long Mediterranean coastline, has left a powerful mark on Western culture and cuisine. Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy shares open land borders with France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, San Marino and Vatican City. Italy's coastline spans 9,136 km, making up 8.75% of the total EU coastline. Fishing in Italy takes place along the entire coastline.

Global demand for seafood is increasing and captive fisheries are at their maximum sustainable yield. Therefore, to meet the future demand, the growth of aquaculture production will need to increase. Seafood demand in Italy has also increased considerably over the last three decades and has the potential to expand to help meet their domestic and international demand.
