Expertise: Aquaculture, design of sustainable systems, environmental assessment

Keywords: Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture, Life Cycle Assessment, fishpond, aquaponics system, biodiversity


Current research topics

My activities deal with the design of sustainable aquaculture systems and environmental assessment of entire aquacultural production systems. Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA), based on associating organisms of different trophic levels to increase nutrient-use efficiency, interests me in particular. I observe fishpond systems as well as recirculating aquaculture systems, such as aquaponics or spirulina production.

The systems considered are assessed using Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), N and P budgets, biodiversity indicators and stable isotopes (C and N) to determine relationships among organisms present in the system. To test the sustainable systems designed, I perform experiments in experimental and/or commercial facilities
