GESAMP WG31 produced a study which presents a set of objectives, methodologies and checklists for assessment and communication of environmental risks which may be associated with coastal aquaculture. The study was peer reviewed before and after its presentation to GESAMP at its 34th Session in May 2007. The study, published by FAO as GESAMP Reports and Studies No 76: “Assessment and communication of environmental risks in coastal aquaculture”, is structured to improve risk communication and to ensure that risk assessment is a scientific exercise in predicting environmental change, and is enriched with six case studies which illustrate the use of the environmental risk assessment methodologies in coastal aquaculture.
