The chair of Aquaculture and Sea Ranching was founded in 2010 under the faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at the University of Rostock. The interdisciplinary team of scientists covers various subjects related to the cultivation of marine and freshwater organisms as well as their interactions with parasites and bacteria. Recent research activities emphasize the rather new field of aquaponics (a combination of fish and plant cultivation). In order to enhance the commercial application of this future-oriented approach, a state-of-the-art aquaponics research facility, “The FishGlassHouse”, was constructed in 2015 at the University of Rostock.

The National Marine Fisheries Research Institute (NMFRI) in Gdynia is Poland’s oldest marine science center. It is a research and development unit supervised by the Polish Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development. Originally dedicated to marine ecology, fisheries and fish food processing, NMFRI has become a place for interdisciplinary research on the Baltic environment and fisheries sector economy. Overexploitation of a large number of fish stock and an accompanying increase in demand on fish and other seafood observed recently in Europe caused that an aquaculture became an increasingly important source of food. Therefore, NMFRI searches and promotes the development in Poland a sustainable and competitive aquaculture sector based on innovative and environmental friendly solutions to strengthen and improve the image of aquaculture in aspects of environment protection and animal welfare.
