Share on Twitter  Reading time: 1 minute

Diverseafood explores how the diversification of UK aquaculture and transition to integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) can increase the contribution of seafood to a healthy and sustainable diet and lead to environmentally and socio-economically sound production.

Using an integrated supply-demand approach, Diverseafood will evaluate the nutritional contribution, environmental sustainability and socioeconomic impact of IMTA. The project will investigate interventions at the levels of business models, regulation and policy, and consumer acceptance of IMTA products. The findings will inform understanding the key barriers to aquaculture diversification.
