Universitair hoofddocent


Marc Verdegem developed a ‘nutritious ponds’ concept based on stimulating microbial-mediated use of wastes, where fish can be harvested at high but sustainable rates without causing unacceptable environmental damage. This concept aligns very well with the interests of WorldFish, an international (CGIAR) research organization that harnesses fisheries and aquaculture to reduce hunger and poverty.
