Characterizing fish supply and aquaculture systems in Myanmar as a guide to measuring environmental footprints
Modeling key fish supply and aquaculture systems for biophysical resource use is a vital step for estimating environmental footprints and was the focus of a recent WorldFish study in Myanmar.
Each month, we highlight our latest publications. Research published in March included the first study to estimate agonistic behavior and feed efficiency in individual Nile tilapia, an understanding of which will support sustainable aquaculture.
