We address the key areas of long term Resilience and Sustainability of the Sector resulting in improved Aquatic Food Security. Our approach is multidisciplinary and strongly integrated both within the Aquaculture Systems Theme and across other thematic groups within the Institute of Aquaculture. Activities encompass environmental modelling, all forms of carrying capacity, spatial analysis, biodiversity and new species, international development, securing and improving fishers' livelihoods, value chains and life cycle assessment. Much of this operates under the guidelines of the Ecosystem Approach to Aquaculture. We are organised through two teams: "Environmental Management" and "Society & Technology Interface".
