Directly addresses the three main challenges for sustainable aquaculture (reducing its ecological footprint, reducing the risk of disease transmission, and controlling the inadvertent introduction of invasive species)
Novel approach considering simultaneously the roles of genetic and non-genetic effects on fish domestication and response to crowding
Combines new molecular techniques with the power of citizen science to develop innovative methods of early detection and management of invasive species in relation to Aquaculture and Fisheries
