They required high efficiency and reliability, combined with easy maintenance, all fitting into an existing pump station. This task ...

  • Aquaculture and sustainable development: a regulatory or governance system?

    Governance is defined as a process allowing actors to contextualise the regulatory system and, as a result, to transform sustainable development (SD) into an instrument of action. It will be all the easier for actors to familiarise themselves with SD and its implementation measures if these measures are similar to their representation on SD and its consequences on their activity and social life. ...

  • Simulations of nutrient emissions from a net cage aquaculture system in a Brazilian bay

    Hydrodynamics and transport simulations were conducted with the modeling software TELEMAC-2D on Icó-Mandantes bay, a branch of the Itaparica reservoir. The bay has a maximal operational water level amplitude of 5 m and is suffering from eutrophication and algae bloom. Therefore, we investigated low and high water level scenarios with two different high resolution meshes, with the purpose to ...
