Supermarket supported area-based management and certification of aquaculture in Southeast Asia (SUPERSEAS)

The SUPERSEAS research project, short for ‘Supermarket supported area-based management and certification of aquaculture in Southeast Asia’, is a project funded by NWO. The overall aim of SUPERSEAS is to improve the design of area-based management for aquaculture production in order to reduce the social and environmental risks associated with smallholder aquaculture, and improve the terms under which smallholders are incorporated in domestic, regional and international retail-led value chains.

There are three PhDs within the SUPERSEAS project, each with a different thematic focus: (1) governance, (2) value chains and (3) finance and risk transfer. This PhD focusses on management principles and governance, and aims to investigate what constitutes area-based management governance arrangements in South-East Asian aquaculture, how the environment is internalised, and whether these arrangements present a sustainable approach to aquaculture management.
