Aquaculture and fisheries

Due to the global increase in the demand for food, fish and shellfish farming have been heavily on the rise and sustainable fishing is needed to secure the world’s food supply. Wageningen Marine Research has the necessary knowledge and investigates the potential for the aquaculture and fisheries sectors to develop sustainable and profitable businesses.

Research is aimed at fish stocks assessments and the behaviour of fishers to enable good management. Wageningen Marine Research develops robust production systems that have low impact on the environment.

Joining forces and a clear focus are essential for the development of the Dutch aquaculture sector
