The Department of Aquatic Resources' activities cover the entire chain from data collection and analysis to research, advice and education.It gives us unique opportunities to develop know-how about how to use the resources in our seas and freshwater in a way that is sustainable in the long term.
The knowledge we at SLU Aqua develop about the ecosystems in our waters can be used directly in the management of seas, lakes and watercourses. Therefore, our research is also intertwined with our environmental monitoring and analysis. Why are some species declining and others increasing? What does a balanced ecosystem look like and can such be recreated?
