Fisheries and Aquatic Production

Lifecycle:4 Jan 2012 →  31 Dec 2018
Organisation profile:

This research includes fisheries biology, fishing gear and aquaculture. We study the status of commercial fish stocks and give advice for setting the fishing quota. The ecological and economic effects of (new types of) fishing gear and alternative fishing methods are examined. We study fish/shellfish aquaculture systems at sea as well as in recirculation systems on land. Innovations are implemented using an integrated approach.
