Aquaculture Research Institute

Site Navigation:


Marine aquaculture in the coastal zone has the potential to help solve several societal problems including contributions to the global food and energy systems. These systems are subject to complex and dynamic interactions among natural and human-driven processes.

A major challenge is to understand the dynamics of this coupled human-natural system in order to inform societal decisions about the intensification of marine aquaculture in the coastal zone. Such understanding requires integration of a broad range of disciplines from the natural, social, economic and behavioral sciences.

Faculty interested in joining us in the development of this proposal are invited to contact
