This PhD course aims at presenting and discussing trans- and interdisciplinary methodologies to study the world’s aquaculture ecosystems and their possibilities to develop. The students will be introduced to “The Triple Helix model”, a useful approach for integrating academic, public and industry partners. The course will cover new and developing aquaculture production systems, with focus on responsible and sustainable ocean food production.
The course constitutes two parts: 1) one intensive week held at Tjärnö Marine Laboratory (10-12 Feb) and Kristineberg Marine Research Station (12-14 Feb), which are both located on the Swedish West Coast. More information about the research stations is available at Tjärnö and Kristineberg.
2) one internet based part (4 weeks) during which groups of 4 students work together on one aquaculture organism and system to describe the whole value chain “from farm to fork”.
Max 20 PhD students will be accepted.
