Today, around 77 million tons of aquaculture products are marketed worldwide. The majority comes from developing countries, in particular from Asia. Here, the aquaculture sector is an important economic sector, providing jobs and livelihoods for many people. However, the intensification and strong growth of the industry are leading to problems: Large space requirements, high stock densities in the farms, intensive feeding and the introduction of drugs burden the organisms, the surrounding ecosystem and thus also the local people. Ecologically, economically and socially sustainable aquaculture management is therefore indispensable to ensure the nutrition and income of the people dependent on it in the long run. Within the framework of the lecture series "Sustainable Aquaculture" experts will report on development projects and present new technologies and approaches on June 27, 2018.

The talks will be in German.
