SLU Future Food and SLU Aquaculture invites you to an interesting lunch seminar with KSLA Wallenberg Professor Barry Costa-Pierce. Costa-Pierce is an internationally leading scientist in fisheries and aquaculture, who conducts research on the development of sustainable systems for aquaculture from a holistic perspective.

In his talk Integrated Agriculture-Aquaculture-Energy Ecosystems at SLU he will focus mainly on lower trophic level freshwater and coastal examples.

Barry Costa-Pierce has a 40-year career in the marine and freshwater sciences. His overall research interest is in "Ocean Food Systems" - how seafood systems throughout the world; interact with marine/freshwater ecosystems, fisheries, aquaculture, and people.  He often applies a multidisciplinary approach, including ecological, economic and social aspects of sustainability. Professor Costa-Pierce is one of the pioneers of "Ecological Aquaculture"; he served on the Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) team that developed FAO's "Ecosystems Approach to Aquaculture" and ever since has worked on its global to local implementation.
