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…

Towards Environmental Sustainability in Marine Finfish Aquaculture

An overview of the main factors of ecological concern within marine finfish aquaculture, their interactions with the environment, and sustainable alternatives that are currently in use or development are provided.

Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture

A major rethinking is needed regarding the definition of an “aquaculture farm” and regarding how it works within an ecosystem, in the context of a broader framework of Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM).

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.

Open-water integrated multi-trophic aquaculture: environmental biomitigation and economic diversification of fed aquaculture by extractive aquaculture

To develop efficient food production systems, it will be important to understand and use the duality of nutrients to engineer systems producing them in moderation so that they can be partially recaptured while maintaining their concentrations optimal for healthy and productive ecosystems.

World Aquaculture: Environmental Impacts and Troubleshooting Alternatives

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.

Understanding the interaction of extractive and fed aquaculture using ecosystem modelling.

Ecosystem modelling offers a three-dimensional physical, chemical and biological simulation that can help scientists and managers understand and predict the eutrophic impact of aquaculture for a specific embayment, and two projects are using the model to simulate the impact of Aquaculture on Jiaozhou Bay, Shangdong Province, and on Xincun Lagoon, Hainan Province.

Aquaculture Methods for Use in Managing Eutrophicated Waters
