2. Coastal environmental sustainability

The research centre is actively involved with the development of decision support systems (DSS) information systems for the sustainable environmental management. Key environmental parameters have been selected using a combination of specially designed in-situ measurements and numerical models. The development of DSS for selection of suitable sites and estimation of carrying capacity due to floating fish farming in Asia is currently underway. Strategies for improving the selection of suitable sites, environmental criteria for estimation of carrying capacities, zoning and monitoring of cage aquaculture have been proposed.
