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 ecological impacts, global fisheries and human use assessments and natural resource economics and we are teaming with NGOs, government and industry to help promote sustainable aquaculture practice domestically as well as abroad.  Following the ecosystem approach to aquaculture, we are working to advance our understanding of how aquaculture interacts with important ecosystems and devise ways to improve these relationships.
