Sustainable Aquaculture Research Center


Advancing marine aquaculture through interdisciplinary and collaborative research

The Sustainable Aquaculture Research Center (SARC) conducts research to advance marine aquaculture through innovative, interdisciplinary, and collaborative approaches designed to enhance marine profits, culture, and human health, but decrease negative environmental, social, and economic impacts.

We understand that global marine aquaculture is complex and nuanced. A rapidly expanding aquaculture industry, unfettered demand for seafood, and an increasing human population require problem solving in the short-term and encouraging sustainable growth over the long-term. We apply theory, models, empirical field work, and collaborations with industry to address the critical challenges in aquaculture.

SARC is a 501-3c within The Bren School at Univeristy of California Santa Barbara

Who We are

Located at the University of California in Santa Barbara in the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, the Sustainable Aquaculture Research Center is surrounded by cutting edge coastal resource and aquaculture research. Our researchers are leaders in marine ecology, global fisheries, human use assessments and natural resource economics. SARC partners with NGOs, government and industry to help promote sustainable aquaculture practice domestically as well as abroad. 

 

 

What We Do

We develop innovative solutions to advance marine aquaculture through interdisciplinary, and collaborative approaches. Our goal is to enhance prosperity, ecosystem services, and human health, while decreasing negative environmental, social, and economic impacts.
