Proposed Local Ecological Impact Categories and Indicators for Life Cycle Assessment of Aquaculture A Salmon Aquaculture Case Study
In this study we discuss impact categories and indicators to incorporate local ecological impacts into life cycle assessment (LCA) for aquaculture. We focus on the production stages of salmon farmingfreshwater hatcheries ...

Life Cycle Environmental Impacts of Three Products Derived from Wild-Caught Antarctic Krill (Euphausia superba)
Concern has been voiced in recent years regarding the environmental implications of the Antarctic krill fishery. Attention has focused primarily on ecological concerns, whereas other environmental aspects, including ...
Human appropriation of net primary production (HANPP) in Nova Scotia, Canada
Photosynthetically fixed energy from the sun, in the form of net primary production, ultimately supports the majority of life on earth. Given the importance of this energy source, we calculate the human appropriation of ...
Measuring environmental impact at the neighbourhood level
(Taylor & Francis Group Ltd., 2 Park Square Oxford OX14 4RN United Kingdom, 2013-01)
