Project Details

Description

Making space for increased aquaculture production: Using the Ecosystem Approach to Aquaculture, we are identifying key constraints to aquaculture industry development.

Layman's description

Aquaculture needs to increase production in the face of declining wild fish stocks and increased demand for seafood worldwide. We aim to provide increased space for aquaculture by identifying key constraints limiting development Increased aquaculture production
Aquaculture needs to increase production in the face of declining wild fish stocks and increased demand for seafood worldwide Our methods
Aquaculture sites around the world are giving us a closer look at space-related development constraints Examine different scales By engaging with stakeholders at 16 case study sites, we are collecting information at a local level and then making comparisons across regions. Our tools We are evaluating tools to facilitate the aquaculture planning process to overcome present constraints Operational toolbox We will deliver a practical toolbox of functioning tools that have been assessed and tested at our case study sites.
