Promoting and managing for Blue Growth requires holistic understanding of sustainability to avoid repeating the same mistakes as done in the past. This presentation will provide an overview of key findings in life cycle assessments of seafood production from both farmed and wild-caught species. Furthermore, it will highlight challenges and opportunities for holistic sustainability assessments and the management of seafood.

Though her research, Dr Hornborg has gained a wealth of insight from a variety of themes including environmental implications of different fishery regimes; evaluation of innovative feed concepts for aquaculture; and the development of broad sustainability assessments.

Dr Sara Hornborg is a researcher at the unit Sustainable Consumption and Production at RISE – Research Institutes of Sweden. Her research relates to environmental system analysis of seafood production systems in the form of life cycle assessment and ecological risk assessment to both farmed and wild-caught species.
