About This Project

(En français)

We are studying public perception about macroalgae (seaweed) aquaculture. Our goal is to value the ecosystem services provided by MA aquaculture, especially in waterways suffering from elevated eutrophication levels. We are hoping to reveal the trade off between positive environmental quality changes, and negative aesthetic changes to the otherwise 'natural' environment. We can use this knowledge to better understand how MA aquaculture should be implemented in a sustainable economy.
