The rapid development of intensive fed aquaculture (e.g. finfish and shrimp) throughout the world is associated with concerns about the environmental impacts of such often monospecific practices, especially where activities are highly geographically concentrated or located in suboptimal sites whose assimilative capacity is poorly understood and, consequently, prone to being exceeded. One of the main environmental issues is the direct discharge of significant nutrient loads into coastal waters… Expand
Technological advances in aquaculture farms for minimal effluent discharge to oceans
Aquaculture is an expanding, high value primary industry in many countries including Australia. At the same time, the environmental sustainability of aquaculture is attracting increasing attention,Expand
Multitrophic Integration for Sustainable Marine Aquaculture
The seafood industry is at a crossroads: while capture fisheries are stagnating in volume and decreasing in profitability, they are also falling short of world demand, as the annual consumption ofExpand
Mariculture Waste Management
Aquaculture has developed rapidly over the past decades and this trend will probably continue as capture fisheries are in global decline. However, aquaculture is now at a crossroad and there are manyExpand
Integrated aquaculture: rationale, evolution and state of the art emphasizing seaweed biofiltration in modern mariculture
TLDR
Plants can drastically reduce feed use and environmental impact of industrialized mariculture and at the same time add to its income through nutrient-assimilating photoautotrophic plants, which counteract the environmental effects of the heterotrophic fed fish and shrimp and restore water. Expand
Salmon aquaculture and coastal ecosystem health in Chile: Analysis of regulations, environmental impacts and bioremediation systems
TLDR
The government and industry are called on to support the creation of a well-financed and politically independent agency responsible for developing and enforcing science-based environmental regulations in Chile and proposed new regulations and monitoring programmes that encourage and accommodate emerging bioremediation technologies.

Towards Environmental Sustainability in Marine Finfish Aquaculture
Aquaculture is one of the fastest growing food production sectors and has great potential for food security and livelihoods. However, it generates concerning consequences for the environment,Expand
Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture
Fulfilling aquaculture’s growth potential requires responsible technologies and practices. Sustainable aquaculture should be ecologically efficient, environmentally benign, product-diversified,Expand
Sustainable Kelp Aquaculture in Sweden
TLDR
The results suggest a well-connected metapopulation along the Swedish west coast, but with clear signals of adaptive divergence between sub-populations, most likely driven by environmental selection. Expand
Open-water integrated multi-trophic aquaculture: environmental biomitigation and economic diversification of fed aquaculture by extractive aquaculture
Integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) seeks to biodiversify fed aquaculture (e.g. finfish or shrimps) with extractive aquaculture, recapturing the inorganic (e.g. seaweeds) and organic (e.g.Expand
World Aquaculture: Environmental Impacts and Troubleshooting Alternatives
TLDR
The new strategies proposed during the last decade have proven that it is possible to achieve a sustainable aquaculture, but such strategies should be supported and proclaimed by the different federal environmental agencies from all countries. Expand

A review of the environmental effects and alternative production strategies of marine aquaculture in Chile
TLDR
It has been affirmed that fish cultivation, in particular that of salmon species, also has an environmental impact related to organic sedimentation and changes in the fauna, and results indicate that the current dynamics of bays and fjords seem to be an important factor for the environmental sustainability of the salmon culture areas.

TLDR
The design allowed significant increases in overall water residence time, compared with conventional intensive ponds, and produced a high yield of seaweed in addition to the fish, and provides a practical solution to major management and environmental problems of land-based mariculture. Expand
