Use of Ecosystems Science in Ecological Aquaculture

  title={Use of Ecosystems Science in Ecological Aquaculture},
  author={Barry Antonio Costa-Pierce},
In the 21 st century, aquaculture developers will need to spend as much time on technological advances coming to the field as they do in designing ecological approaches that clearly exhibit stewardship of the environment and coastal societies. The degraded state of aquatic ecosystems worldwide, combined with public concerns about adding new sources of pollution to already overburdened aquatic ecosystems require: a) comprehensive planning for aquaculture in the future of sustainable fisheries, b…

Taxonomy of Aquaculture

Costa-Pierce (2002) defined "ecological aquaculture" as an alternative model that uses ecological principles and ecosystems thinking as the fundamental organizing paradigm for the development of

Analysis supports the structural theory that whenever the demands of aquatic/seafood-eating peoples exceeded the abilities of their indigenous fishery ecosystems to provide for them, they developed aquaculture.

The sustainability assessment of the National Aquaculture Strategy for Cameroon

A sustainability checklist was applied to the NAS for Cameroon to understand to what extent it mainstreams sustainable development principles, and there are several shortcomings that could impede its sustainability and that of a subsequent aquaculture development plan.

Archaeological Aquaculture

Aquaculture has a long, fascinating pre-history with well documented “blue revolutions” occurring throughout (Table 1), but today, the roles of aquaculture to supply protein foods for an estimated 12 billion people by 2050 are in uncharted territory.

Antimicrobial use in aquaculture re-examined: its relevance to antimicrobial resistance and to animal and human health.

Excessive use of antimicrobials in aquaculture can potentially negatively impact animal and human health as well as the aquatic environment and should be better assessed and regulated.

Rhode Island aquaculturists' perceptions of eco-labeling certification programs

Most aquaculturists were unaware of the eco-labeling programs available for aquaculture and unsure about how they would choose between certification programs, while certification costs and additional recordkeeping required for certification were identified as the strongest disincentives.

Microbial Biotechnology: Basic Research and Applications

Exploring biotechnological applications and understanding their mechanism of alteration permit the progress on the circumstances necessary for various microbial applications with stare to sustainable development, community structure and environmental processes.

A Hierarchical Concept of Ecosystems.

"Ecosystem" is an intuitively appealing concept to most ecologists, but, in spite of its widespread use, the term remains diffuse and ambiguous. The authors of this book argue that previous attempts
