Project description

Aquaculture is considered more and more as a sustainable alternative for fishery products. Western countries depend on the import of products like Pangasius from countries like Vietnam. Nevertheless, questions with respect to the environmental sustainability of these alternatives are arising. The research aims at bringing answers to that type of questions through life cycle assessment.
