Aquaculture, biodiversity, health team

The Aquaculture, biodiversity, health (AQUABIOS) team develops research on sustainable aquaculture, biodiversity and health.
World fish production is mainly provided by inland freshwater (90%). In the current context of global changes and the need to evolve practices towards more resilient aquaculture systems, the DIVA team is developing approaches based on ecological intensification (e.g. IMTA), which consists of increasing the efficiency of systems, based on ecological levers, while increasing the production and safety of aquatic animals. The team’s research also focuses on understanding the links between local aquatic biodiversity and aquaculture in the emergence of infectious diseases impacting both animals and humans. Thus, the AQUABIOS scientific project is at the interface between the sustainable development of aquaculture, the conservation of biodiversity, the preservation of the environment and the control of health risks. Our fields of study extend from Africa (Madagascar, Guinea, Ivory Coast) to South East Asia (Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam).
