AQUAWALES

Minimising the Impacts of Intensive Aquaculture in the face of Climate Change

Cluster Leader: Dr Sonia Consuegra, Swansea University.

  • Directly addresses the three main challenges for sustainable aquaculture (reducing its ecological footprint, reducing the risk of disease transmission, and controlling the inadvertent introduction of invasive species)
  • Novel approach considering simultaneously the roles of genetic and non-genetic effects on fish domestication and response to crowding
  • Combines new molecular techniques with the power of citizen science to develop innovative methods of early detection and management of invasive species in relation to Aquaculture and Fisheries
