SNAPP: Analyzing best practices and standards as a pathway to sustainable and conservation-friendly offshore aquaculture

Principal Investigators:

Dietmar Grimm, and Benjamin S. Halpern

Aquaculture will play a major role in meeting the growing market demand for seafood. The question is consequently less about if or when aquaculture will take off, but more about how and where aquaculture will expand, and what can the scientific community do to help steer aquaculture towards more sustainable practices. We propose a SNAP project that will examine specific dimensions of the“aquaculture problem” (or opportunity), and synthesize its findings in a forward looking prospectus. The four scientific products of this working group will... more
