Field and modeling studies in FORWARD



Local-scale simulations of pond culture may help in determining finfish culture density, and appropriate combinations of finfish and shellfish in integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA);

For two replicate ponds, individual biomass after 134 days of culture was 303 ± 69 g (measured) and 277 g (simulated); after 246 days of cultivation the fish had an average biomass of 367 ± 51 g (measured) compared with 396 g (simulated)

Local-scale models


The Farm Aquaculture Resource Management (FARM) model is available to the local water resource and fisheries managers and through them to the growers’ associations for use by farmers
