40 years of Aquaculture!

To mark 40 years of publication of the journal Aquaculture, in November, 2013, Elsevier are organising the conference: To the Next 40 Years of Sustainable Global Aquaculture in Gran Carnaria. During the conference, several papers by SEAT researchers are being presented where the project and their findings will be discussed.

The conference aims to celebrating the last 40 years of outstanding science accomplishments in aquaculture and will also identify the main science challenges for the next generation of global aquaculture. Among the papers being presented are findings from SEAT Researchers Prof. Dave Little, Dr. Francis Murray and Leiden University PHD student Patrik Henriksson.

Patrik has been completing his PHD conducting Life Cycle Analysises on the value chains of the SEAT species and countries. He is the co-author of the paper: Mangrove-shrimp farms in Vietnam – Comparing organic and conventional systems using Life Cycle Assessment.

 Dr. Murray and Prof. Little are both co-authors on a paper that addresses the issue of enterprise size and scale and seeks to answer What is ‘small-scale’ aquaculture? Defining enterprise scale in relation to export potential.
