Farming the Ocean – Seaweeds as a Quick Fix for the Climate?

Finding ways to keep global warming under 1.5 degrees Celsius is urgent and will need a portfolio of solutions. Seaweeds are marine photosynthetic organisms that humans harvest either from the wild or farm, to be used in many applications and providing various ecosystem services. Large scale farming of seaweeds for absorbing carbon has lately been promoted as a climate “fix”. The major shortcomings of this…

Life cycle assessment of Indonesian canned crab (Portunus pelagicus)

Indonesia is an archipelagic country with abundant marine wealth that makes it the world’s second largest producer of fish after China. While most of Indonesia’s capture marine fisheries (80%) are consumed domestically, around 90% of blue swimming crab (BSC) products are exported, mainly in cans. This makes up almost half of all BSC products on the global market, with the United States and the European…

Sustainable optimization of global aquatic omega-3 supply chain could sub­stantially narrow the nutrient gap

Omega-3 EPA and DHA fatty acids are vital for human health, but current human nutritional requirements are greater than supply. This nutrient gap is poised to increase as demand increases and the abundance of aquatic foods and the amount of omega-3 they contain may dwindle due to climate change and overfishing. Identifying and mitigating loss and inefficiencies across the global aquatic supply chain has great…

Scientific mobilization of Keystone Actors for Biosphere Stewardship

The biosphere crisis requires changes to existing business practices. We ask how corporations can become sustainability leaders, when constrained by multiple barriers to collaboration for biosphere stewardship. We describe how scientists motivated, inspired and engaged with ten of the world’s largest seafood companies, in a collaborative process aimed to enable science-based and systemic transformations (2015–2021). CEOs faced multiple industry crises in 2015 that incentivized novel…

Factors influencing antimicrobial resistance in the Euro­pean food system and potential leverage points for intervention: A participatory, One Health study

Introduction: Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global crisis that evolves from a complex system of factors. Understanding what factors interact is key to finding solutions. Our objective was to identify the factors influencing AMR in the European food system and places to intervene. Materials and methods: We conducted two workshops involving participants with diverse perspectives to identify the factors influencing AMR and leverage points (places) to…

The co-evolving nature of inequality

As the world strives to accelerate action towards sustainability, inequality prevents socially sustainable solutions. Inequality is persistent, and it is associated with multiple social and health problems. Inequality is also related to risks in the new planetary reality of a changing climate and biodiversity loss.

Characterizing social-ecological context and success factors of antimicrobial resistance interventions across the One Health spectrum: analysis of 42 interventions targeting E. coli

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is among the most pressing One Health issues. While interventions and policies with various targets and goals have been implemented, evidence about factors underpinning success and failure of interventions in different sectors is lacking. The objective of this study is to identify characteristics of AMR interventions that increase their capacity to impact AMR. This study focuses on AMR interventions targeting E. coli.

Hållbar sjömat  – vilken sjömat ska man välja?

Livsmedel från hav och sjöar, även kallat sjömat, består av flera tusen olika arter. Dessa arter kan fiskas och/eller odlas i vattenbruk på olika sätt. I Sverige domineras sjömatskonsumtionen av ett tiotal arter. Sjömat har olika miljömässiga utmaningar och möjligheter. Sjömat från fiske är inte beroende av foderproduktion vilket många typer av vattenbruk är. Foderproduktion driver ofta den totala mark- och vattenanvändningen samt klimatpåverkan hos…
