Abstract:
The research group Aquatic Ecology (AECO) focuses on innovative technologies for a more efficient and reliable exploitation of water systems in a context of sustainable development. Marine research topics dealt with by AECO include:
  • analysis of risks and benefits of the consumption of fisheries products;
  • sustainability analysis of marine systems;
  • fish monitoring based on camera-systems and telemetry;
  • innovation in monitoring and modelling to support decision-making in fisheries and biodiversity protection;
  • optimisation of plastic clean-up technologies;
  • analysis of the ecosystem functions of mangroves;
  • multifunctional analysis and optimisation of marine systems in relation to land-use and multi-stakeholder exploitation;
  • recirculation aquaculture systems for sea horse production;
  • fisheries analysis based on data mining and artificial intelligence.
