The goal of the Datathon for fisheries and aquaculture was to provide a vision to cope with the following topics:

  • How to fit aquaculture sites in the local natural and human seascapes?
  • What are the common data needs for aquaculture and marine spatial planning?
  • What are the perceived data gaps, and how can these be filled?
  • How to factor in future impacts such as climate change and nutrient pollution?

Congratulations to all the participants!
