Onderzoeker

Kazi Ahmed Kabir is researcher in aquaculture and fisheries group of Wageningen University and Research. He also holds a joint appointment with WorldFish. His research is focused on tropical aquaculture system inclusive of smallholders. In his recent research he has brought the idea of system level nutrient management for aquaculture bringing pond as the system. This allows him to explore the environment-species and nutrient inter-action for low-input, efficient and sustainable fish farming. While digging deeper into the pond system dynamics he found possibilities of using microbial food web in the pond to utilize non-conventional products, food waste and agricultural by products to use as useful feed ingredients. Thus he brought pond aquaculture more strongly in the circular approach of food production. He has done substantial work on integrated aquaculture systems such as rice-aquaculture and mangrove-aquaculture systems prior joining Wageningen University and Research.

In Wageningen Kabir is involved in managing couple of projects in Southeast Asia and Africa and supervising PhD and MSc students.
