Evolving Perspectives of Stewardship in the Seafood Industry

Blasiak, R., A. Dauriach, J-B. Jouffray, C. Folke, H. Österblom, J. Bebbington, F. Bengtsson et. al.. 2021. Evolving Perspectives of Stewardship in the Seafood Industry. Frontiers in Marine Science  09 June 2021.

Humanity has never benefited more from the ocean as a source of food, livelihoods, and well-being, yet on a global scale this has been accompanied by trajectories of degradation and persistent inequity. Awareness of this has spurred policymakers to develop an expanding network of ocean governance instruments, catalyzed civil society pressure on the public and private sector, and motivated engagement by the general public as...

Recirculating Aquaculture Is Possible without Major Energy Tradeoff: Life Cycle Assessment of Warmwater Fish Farming in Sweden

Bergman, K., P. J. G. Henriksson, S. Hornborg, M. Troell, L. Borthwick, M. Jonell, G. Philis, and F. Ziegler. 2020. Recirculating Aquaculture Is Possible without Major Energy Tradeoff: Life Cycle Assessment of Warmwater Fish Farming in Sweden. Environmental Science & Technology 54(24):16062–16070.

Seafood is seen as promising for more sustainable diets. The increasing production in land-based closed Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RASs) has overcome many local environmental challenges with traditional open net-pen systems such as eutrophication. The energy needed to maintain suitable water quality, with associated emissions, has however been seen as challenging from a global perspective. This study uses Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to investigate the environmental...

Reorientation of aquaculture production systems can reduce environmental impacts and improve nutrition security in Bangladesh

Shepon, A., J. A. Gephart, P. J. G. Henriksson, R. Jones, K. Murshed-e-Jahan, G. Eshel and C. D. Golden . 2020. Reorientation of aquaculture production systems can reduce environmental impacts and improve nutrition security in Bangladesh. Nature Food (1):640–647.

Aquatic foods are a critical source of human nutrition in many developing countries. As a result, declines in wild-caught fish landings threaten nutritionally vulnerable populations. Aquaculture presents an opportunity to meet local demand, but it also places pressure on natural resource inputs and causes a range of environmental impacts. Here, we examine whether current aquaculture systems in Bangladesh can be reoriented to address prevailing nutritional...

Evidence for action: a One Health learning platform on interventions to tackle antimicrobial resistance

Wernli, D., Jørgensen, P.S., Parmley, E.J., Troell, M., et.al. 2020. Evidence for action: a One Health learning platform on interventions to tackle antimicrobial resistance. Lancet Infectious Diseases DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/S1473-3099(20)30392-3.

Improving evidence for action is crucial to tackle antimicrobial resistance. The number of interventions for antimicrobial resistance is increasing but current research has major limitations in terms of efforts, methods, scope, quality, and reporting. Moving the agenda forwards requires an improved understanding of the diversity of interventions, their feasibility and cost–benefit, the implementation factors that shape and underpin their effectiveness, and the ways in which...

China at a Crossroads: An Analysis of China’s Changing Seafood Production and Consumption

Crona, B., E. Wassénius, M. Troell, K. Barclay, T. Mallory, M. Fabinyi, W. Zhang, V. W.Y. Lam, L. Cao, P. J.G. Henriksson, H. Eriksson. 2020. China at a Crossroads: An Analysis of China's Changing Seafood Production and Consumption. One Earth 3(1):32-44.

China is a key player in global production, consumption, and trade of seafood. Given this dominance, Chinese choices regarding what seafood to eat, and how and where to source it, are increasingly important—for China, and for the rest of the world. This perspective explores this issue using a transdisciplinary approach and discusses plausible trajectories and implications for assumptions of future modeling efforts and global environmental...

Coevolutionary Governance of Antibiotic and Pesticide Resistance

Jørgensen, P. S., C. Folke, P. J. G. G. Henriksson, K. Malmros, M. Troell, A. Zorzet, and Living with Resistance project. 2020. Coevolutionary Governance of Antibiotic and Pesticide Resistance. Trends in Ecology and Evolution: 35(6):484-494.

Development of new biocides has dominated human responses to evolution of antibiotic and pesticide resistance. Increasing and uniform biocide use, the spread of resistance genes, and the lack of new classes of compounds indicate the importance of navigating toward more sustainable coevolutionary dynamics between human culture and species that evolve resistance. To inform this challenge, we introduce the concept of coevolutionary governance and propose three...

The future of aquaculture in Indonesia: A transformation toward increased sustainability

Henriksson, P. J. G., L. K. Banks, S. Suri, T. Y. Pratiwi, N. Ahmad Fatan, and M. Troell. 2019. The future of aquaculture in Indonesia: A transformation toward increased sustainability. Penang, Malaysia: WorldFish. Policy Brief: 2019-14.

To combat current high levels of malnutrition and stunting, the Indonesian government has set ambitious targets for aquaculture growth up to 2030. Fish already fundamentally contributes to the well-being of Indonesians by offering an affordable source of nutritious animal protein. However, to reach these targets, production will have to more than triple. However, meeting the production targets will come at a cost for the environment....

Indonesian aquaculture futures — identifying interventions for reducing environmental impacts

Henriksson, P. J. G., L. K. Banks, S. K. Suri, T. Y. Pratiwi, M. R. Fatan, and M. Troell. 2019. Indonesian aquaculture futures — identifying interventions for reducing environmental impacts. Environmental Research Letters 14:124062.

Indonesia is the world’s second largest producer and third largest consumer of seafood. Fish is therefore essential to the nation, both financially and nutritionally. Overfishing and the effects of climate change will, however, limit future landings of capture fisheries, so any increases in future seafood production will need to come from aquaculture. The ecological effects of aquaculture are dependent upon the choice of species, management,...

Everything is relative and nothing is certain. Toward a theory and practice of comparative probabilistic LCA

Heijungs, R., J. B. Guinée, A. Mendoza Beltrán, P. J. G. Henriksson, and E. Groen. 2019. Everything is relative and nothing is certain. Toward a theory and practice of comparative probabilistic LCA. International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment  24(9):1573–1579.

Introduction It is widely recognized that LCA is in most cases relative and contains uncertainties due to choices and data. This paper analyses the combination of the two comparative uncertainties. Basic concepts We carefully define the idea of relativity and uncertainty within LCA. We finish off by giving an example of case where inappropriate handling of comparative uncertainties will lead to a misleading result for...
