Optimising system size for enhanced productivity with environmental equilibrium
Organised by the European Aquaculture Society in cooperation with the Nor-Fishing Foundation, SINTEF and CREATE, AQUA NOR FORUM 2011 addressed one of the critical constraints to the development of aquaculture in Europe – notably access to sites with high water quality to ensure high quality aquaculture products. By up-scaling production systems an increase in productivity can be obtained for any specific site; but this must be compliant with legislation, with regard to fish welfare, with regard to husbandry and especially with regard to the environmental impacts of increased production systems.
