Building an ecosystem approach to aquaculture (FAO proceedings)
Aquaculture growth worldwide involves the expansion of cultivated areas, an increasing number of farms (all sizes), higher density of aquaculture installations and farmed individuals, and greater use of feed resources produced outside the immediate culture area.
Recently-published FAO proceedings, Building an ecosystem approach to aquaculture, present the output of an expert workshop organized by FAO and the Univesitat de les Balears from 7-11 May 2007 in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. It includes contributed papers on definitions, principles, scales and management measures, human dimensions, economic implications and legal implications that are relevant for an ecosystem-based management in aquaculture.
