We proudly bring together world-class researchers from a variety of disciplines in order to meet the wide range of challenges the world faces as aquaculture grows to meet global food demand.
Our research focuses on critical questions, such as how to develop strategies for sustainable aquaculture and aquatic food security, how to inform modern commercial markets and how to support communities in developing countries so they have enough to eat. 100% of our research impact in Aquaculture is rated world-leading (REF 2021).
