Guiding Principles

  • We believe that the development (and scaling up) of sustainable aquaculture ecosystems is essential in order to secure the futures of thousands of resource-dependent fishing and aquaculture families and their coastal communities; to restore coastal ecosystems and habitats; and to provide healthy aquatic proteins (“sustainable seafoods”) to millions of consumers.
  • We believe that a more diverse group of multidisciplinary professionals and stakeholders is needed to be drawn together to chart aquaculture’s future. Advances are needed not only in technology and engineering, but also in regional and urban planning, information networking, leadership, organizational and community development, facilitation, and mediation.
  • We are committed to working with partners throughout the world who are developing aquaculture ecosystems that not only use the best ecosystem science in their work, but also incorporate the principles of social ecology, social sustainability, and “social profit” into all phases of planning for aquaculture developments.
