Description

This document presents the proceedings of an FAO-sponsored expert workshop held in December 2010. It presents seven global reviews and ten regional reviews on site selection and carrying capacity encompassing inland aquaculture and coastal aquaculture, and a summary of major findings and recommendations. It also includes supplementary inputs on environmental impact, site selection and carrying capacity estimation for small-scale aquaculture in Asia and guidelines for aquaculture site selection and carrying capacity for inland and coastal aquaculture in mid- and northern Europe. Topics covered include definitions of carrying capacity appropriate for different types of aquaculture and the range and capability of available modelling tools, including spatial tools for addressing these capacities. The prioritization and sequence for addressing site selection and the different categories of carrying capacity are considered in detail in terms of both regional or national priorities and site-specific considerations. An accompanying CD-ROM includes the full document.
