Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Aquaculture is an old established system of food production. The Romans were reputedly farming shellfish in the Mediterranean coastal lagoons some two thousand years ago; freshwater fish husbandry was developed on the monastic estates of western Europe during the medieval period. But it is only with the rapid expansion of marine aquaculture in the last quarter of a century that it has come to be recognised both as a significant contributor to global food supplies and as a potential problem for the aquatic environment.
