Aquaculture systems

Aquaculture is expanding rapidly and interacting with natural aquatic resources through multiple environmental and market linkages. We investigate nutrient dynamics and related environmental impacts of aquaculture systems; domestication and feralisation issues in aquatic organisms, and indigenous aquaculture technologies within rice farming landscapes.
