The sustainable exploitation of natural resources is the alternative to their depletion and the impoverishment of human society. Economic activities that use living resources, both recreational-recreational and primary productive, face great challenges and uncertainties when the knowledge of the organisms and processes involved is insufficient. This also affects the aquaculture sector, which is in a phase of intense development and growth. In ECOHYDROS we work to put at the service of managers and users innovative and efficient techniques that improve profitability without endangering the resource itself and ecosystems. The knowledge acquired is directly translated into practical tools for sustainable management, which in turn allow new lines and business models to be tested around living resources.
