Subject: New insights into benefits and risks of aquaculture

Description: Mariculture, or marine aquaculture, the technique of raising fish, other seafood, and plants in ocean cages offers the possibility of increasing the food supply for a hungry world, but it also poses environmental risks of various sorts. We will hear about two ongoing experiments that seek to assess the positive and negative impacts in two geographic areas. Kenneth Black will discuss a Scottish salmon farm, its production and its impact on the water column and the sedimentary layer on the ocean floor. Anthony Ostrowski will present results of the Hawaii Offshore Aquaculture Research Project (HOARP), which raises Pacific threadfin in an effort to determine the economic and environmental feasibility of offshore aquaculture in the Pacific region.
