A novel autonomous biosensor may help scientists to detect environmental hazards in the sea at an early stage. But applying such approach to the marine environment is a huge challenge.
Newly developed genetic tools may help distinguish wild fish from those escaped from farms, providing a boost for sustainable and environmentally friendly aquaculture.
European scientists are experimenting with bacteria and algae and turn them into bioplastic factories. Their vision: these microorganisms should produce a large portion of our plastic materials without any petroleum.
Domesticating Atlantic Bluefin Tuna may help meet the food industry’s demand for this endangered species. However, making such an endeavour sustainable is a challenging task.
New research is underway that aims to improve detection of seafood contaminants that could be used in prevention and to assess their impact on public health.
Algae offer many advantages, for the production of precursor molecules used to produce plastics. But these solutions are still quite a long way away
Scientists are investigating how shell waste from crustaceans could be turned into polymer precursors as a substitute to petroleum-derived solutions.
Producing sea shells and algae alongside fish could provide both an environmentally friendly and economically viable solution to make Mediterranean aquaculture sustainable.
A new project is exploring means of turning fish waste into value-added products such as neutraceuticals while attempting to make fisheries a greener industry in developing countries
How continuous monitoring of coastal ecosystems, such as the Black Sea, could help understand oxygen depletion affecting fish populations and better manage fisheries
