Applied Ecophysiology of Marine Aquaculture Specie...

Forecasting environmental interactions of marine aquaculture activities requires an in-depth understanding of the environment and the species farmed. We are investigating two promising candidates for marine aquaculture: red porgy and ...

AquaSpace – An Ecosystem Approach to Making Space ...

Aquaculture is a large and growing segment of seafood production because capture fisheries production continues to decline. A major challenge to the expansion of marine aquaculture in most nations is ...

Bioeffects Assessment in Bristol Bay, Alaska: Char...

Bristol Bay hosts the largest salmon fishery in the world, as well as a number of other important fisheries. We are studying sediment conditions that influence biodiversity and the distribution ...

Development of Environmental Monitoring Guidelines...

We are assisting coastal managers and aquaculture farm operators with the development of environmental monitoring protocols for marine aquaculture. These protocols are helping coastal managers develop practices that support sustainable ...

Environmental Models for Marine Aquaculture and Sp...

We are developing marine spatial planning tools and best management practices for marine aquaculture to minimize or eliminate any negative environmental effects. We are providing strategic planning and technical guidance ...

Eutrophication and Oyster Aquaculture in the Patux...

Eutrophication is the overabundance of nutrients in a body of water that results in harmful algal blooms, fish kills, and in some cases ecosystem collapse. We are investigating the feasibility ...
