Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA)
Oyster aquaculture has grown dramatically in New Hampshire during the past few years. Environmental agencies have begun to view oyster farming in the context of managing nutrient (mainly nitrogen) pollution in the Great Bay Estuary. Our research centers on the possibility that seaweed and oyster aquaculture might be coupled in mutually beneficial ways via integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA).
