Sustainability is recognized as the main objective in the management of aquaculture, therefore it requires responsible practices and production systems to make aquaculture ecologically low impact, diversified and profitable.

This project aims to create the Sustainable Mariculture Network for the exchange of knowledge and experience in the development of sustainable marine-based aquaculture systems, facilitating cross-cutting capacity among national and international academic institutions and local communities in the Colombian Caribbean coastal region. To this end, it proposes the generation of scientific knowledge on the biology and ecology of promising species to design and develop integrated aquaculture system models, including a collaborative extended work so called in-situ experimentation, designed according to the guidelines of artisanal fish farmers inhabiting the coastal lagoon of Cienaga Grande de Santa Marta.
