Aquaculture is hot topic in marine science, and given the many opportunities it presents, is likely to remain so in the future. ICES Insight examines the use of genetics in tracing farmed salmon and how farmed and wild populations interact with each other.
Another area with countless opportunities is marine biotechnology. But what kind of regulation is needed to ensure everyone benefits equally? Laura Giuliano of the Mediterranean Science Commission (CIESM) presents the challenges faced in this fast growing industry.
The latest issue also details the find of the first living deep-water coral off Greenland and why our oceans are being clogged with marine litter.
We hope you enjoy these, and other, articles and welcome feedback.
