Aquaculture has been viewed as a potential pathway to healthy and sustainable diets by increasing global nutrient-rich food production while minimizing environmental impacts.
This article demonstrates that, by actively engaging in the interdependent phases of recognizing hybridity, enabling conditions for reflexivity and partnership building, 'inclusivity' tensions can not only be acknowledged but softened and, in some cases, reframed when managing for biodiversity, equity, and justice goals.
Temperature and sea level rise threats to aquaculture were the main focus in science and the news. At least 10 countries linked current impacts on aquaculture to climate change. Global papers cited technology for adaption, while regional papers cited governance.
An article focused on (i) understanding how climate change is decreasing ocean biodiversity and (ii) identifying the planetary health impacts accelerated by ocean biodiversity erosion.

Farmed fish are commonly exposed to stress in intensive aquaculture systems, often leading to immune impairment and increased susceptibility to disease. Effects of two aquaculture-relevant early-life stressors on the gut and skin microbiome of Atlantic salmon fry (four months post hatching) using 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing were studied.
Fish experiencing abnormally high or prolonged elevations in temperature can exhibit impaired reproduction, even for species adapted to warm water environments.
An interdisciplinary team of researchers and citizen scientists team up for assessing water quality in an iconic English river.
