The Human Dimensions of Aquaculture
Grant Murray & Luke Fairbanks
Duke University Marine Lab


The nature of seafood production is rapidly changing. In many places, conventional commercial fishing activities have changed significantly, with profound effects on fishing communities. At the same time, aquaculture has grown rapidly. In this context, coastal communities are experiencing new types of impacts (both positive and negative) on their livelihoods and well-being, and communities and managers alike are faced with the need to better understand these impacts as they seek to make informed choices about the opportunities, tradeoffs, and areas of conflict associated with aquaculture as a way of producing seafood. However, while the ‘human dimensions’ of fishing have long attracted significant scholarly attention, much less attention has been given to aquaculture. Accordingly, this panel presents cases from around the world that illuminate aquaculture’s human dimensions including such things as governance, socio-cultural and economic impacts, gender, and fisheries interactions. The panel is anchored by presentations from members of the IMBeR Human Dimensions working group, but includes presentations from scholars outside of this group.
