  • One health in aquaculture

    Aquaculture is one of the fastest growing and highly traded food sectors, and will become increasingly important in future food systems. This Collection highlights research and commentary on sustainable development of the aquaculture sector incorporating One Health principles - recognising the interconnected health and well-being of people, animals, plants and their shared environment.

  • Food systems and sustainable nutrition

    Large numbers of people are going hungry around the world and nutritional imbalances persist between low- and high-income nations. Not only are our food systems failing society but they are damaging the planet.
