  • Fishing for a Solution

    As writer Rowan Jacobsen explores in our recent feature “Has Meat Met Its Match?,” animal agriculture’s hefty environmental footprint is creating interest in exploring ways to meet humans’ growing appetite for animal protein that extend beyond beef, chicken and pork. In some places, that ...

  • The advantages and disadvantages of culturing fish.

    The advantages and disadvantages of culturing fish. Experts develop practical recommendations for decision-makers, scientists and producers for a sustainable development of Mediterranean aquaculture. Human demand for fish is growing steadily. With fisheries decreasing worldwide, aquaculture is becoming an important socio-economic alternative and a source of proteins and healthy oils. ...

  • When the traditional meets the modern: the sustainability of the artisanal fishing in Guanabara Bay, Brazil

    The industrial development that has contributed to economic prosperity and advancement of standard of living has also brought new risks to people's every day lives and to the environment. This fact has been evident in the multiple uses of environmentally sensitive ecosystems, often resulting in conflicts among the users. This trend is especially apparent in countries like Brazil, where the issues ...

  • A novel fish-drying technique for better environment, quality and sustainability

    This study deals with the development of appropriate sustainable strategies for environmental-benign aquatic processing systems. In this regard, the interactions between the aquatic system and its environment are first defined. Second, the effect of environmental pollution decreasing the fish quality in the aquatic systems has been exposed. Third, some sustainable strategies for improving the ...

  • Valuation and Management of Fishing Resources Under Price Uncertainty

    The traditional expected-net-present-value methods cannot properly capture the management flexibility and strategic value aspects of a fishery, and may understate its value. Instead, this paper develops a Real Options model to conceptualize and evaluate fishery exploitation flexibility. Specifically, general models to value the opportunity to either exploit or invest in a fishery are presented. ...

  • Managing environmental impacts of fishing: input controls versus outcome-oriented approaches

    Fishery management has focused primarily on limiting the total catch of key target species to sustainable levels, but fishery managers and the public are becoming increasingly concerned with environmental impacts of fishing such as damage to habitat and bycatch of non-target species, particularly marine mammals and seabirds. There are two main approaches to managing environmental impacts of ...

  • The effects of surface water abstraction for rice irrigation on floodplain fish production in Bangladesh

    Abstraction of surface water for irrigation poses a serious threat to the sustainability of floodplain fisheries in Bangladesh. Previous fisheries research has accorded a central role to dry-season (Rabi) water maintenance in safeguarding the health of the fishery, but rice irrigation water abstraction dries up water bodies at a rapid rate. Having reviewed various aspects of this water ...

  • Future Brief: Sustainable Aquaculture

    Is sustainable aquaculture possible? Aquaculture is facing a new era of expansion in Europe. What are the environmental implications of this, and how can the sector expand sustainably? This Future Brief from Science for Environment Policy presents an overview of research into aquaculture’s impacts, and considers how it could develop in harmony with environmental goals. The ...

  • Sustainable Soil Health

    “A Nation that destroys its soil destroys itself.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt. We have learned some harsh lessons about how to treat our soil. While most of us are aware of the problems of the past, some agricultural operations in the world are not heeding those lessons. We all know that healthy soil is essential to feed the ever-increasing ...

  • Sustaining Mali’s Inner Niger Delta

    The Inner Niger Delta in central Mali is a giant green oasis on the edge of the Sahara desert. It is one of the country’s most productive areas, but also among its poorest. At the height of the wet season, when the River Niger is swollen by heavy rainfall in Guinea, an area the size of Belgium, from Mopti to Tombouctou, turns into a landscape of lakes. As I discovered on a previous ...

  • Effects of ENSO 1997?1998 on the distribution of small pelagic fish off the west coast of Baja California

    Changes in the Small Pelagic Fish (SPF) densities and distribution during ENSO 1997?1998 were found from observations made between 1994 and 2001 along the northwestern coast of Baja California, Mexico. Results showed that temperature and variables associated with the surface mixing processes had an effect on the SPF shoal behaviour and distribution. Between September and December 1997, acoustic ...

  • Creating a Sustainable Food Future: Interim Findings - A menu of solutions to sustainably feed more than 9 billion people by 2050

    The world’s agricultural system faces a great balancing act. To meet different human needs, by 2050 it must simultaneously produce far more food for a population expected to reach about 9.6 billion, provide economic opportunities for the hundreds of millions of rural poor who depend on agriculture for their livelihoods, and reduce environmental impacts, including ecosystem degradation and ...

  • Seasteading could be the answer to sustainably feeding 9 billion people

    Self-sufficient nation states in the middle of the ocean might be our ticket to a sustainable future. Oceans cover 71 percent of Earth’s surface, yet provide less than 2 percent of the food we eat. The growing demand for seafood, however — predicted to rise to 8 percent during the next decade — from an already depleted and exhausted ocean is forcing ...

  • A sustainable solution for massive coastal erosion in Central Java - Towards Regional Scale Application of Hybrid Engineering

    Deltaic populations in western Indonesia are increasingly threatened by rapid shoreline degradation and erosion. In just a few decades, some coastal areas have retreated by more than two kilometres1. Housing, roads and valuable land is literally swept into the sea. This loss of land continues unabated, sometimes by tens of metres per year. The erosion causes saline intrusion, affecting drinking ...

  • Salmon aquaculture could incorporate seaweed and sea urchins to reduce nitrogen enrichment

    Farming fish together with seaweed and other species could help improve the sustainability of aquaculture and reduce pollution. A new study provides a tool for designing sustainable fish farming systems and calculates their potential to recycle waste. An example of a salmon farming system incorporating seaweed and sea urchins could reduce nitrogen releases to the environment by 45%. Over half of ...

  • Model of an aquaponic system for minimised water, energy and nitrogen requirements

    Water and nutrient savings can be established by coupling water streams between interacting processes. Wastewater from production processes contains nutrients like nitrogen (N), which can and should be recycled in order to meet future regulatory discharge demands. Optimisation of interacting water systems is a complex task. An effective way of understanding, analysing and optimising such ...

  • Fisheries bioeconomics: why is it so widely misunderstood?

    Many fisheries management systems, even when based on apparently sound science, have failed to prevent severe overfishing. And even when successful in this sense, such systems have frequently resulted in a large degree of excess fishing capacity. The reason for these failures can often be found in a lack of consideration of the economic incentives affecting fishermen. Specifically, when forced to ...

  • Composting In rural Alaska

    Gardeners, communities and commercial enterprises have proven that composting works in Alaska, especially given large quantities of fish waste and diminishing landfill capacity. ALASKA is two and a half times larger than the largest state in the lower 48 states. Over half of the entire state’s population lives within the municipality of Anchorage. Many Alaskan villages can only be reached ...
