BBSRC/NERC GCRF research translation project:
This new project enables us to engage with Thai stakeholders to translate our research findings from the previous project into proposals for better policies and practices for sustainable aquaculture. Research findings:
- Read our press release about the main drivers of environmental antimicrobial resistance in Central Thailand‘s coastal aquaculture region.
- Read our paper on the association of antimicrobial resistance with faecal pollution in canals draining surface and wastewater from Bangkok through the coastal aquaculture region towards the Gulf of Thailand.
- Read our paper about the food-water quality nexus in Thailand’s coastal aquaculture region.
- Read about our related work on multidrug resistant bacteria in the river Melayu in Malaysia.
- Read our paper on the valorisation of agricultural waste derived biochar in aquaculture to remove micropollutants from water.
Newton Fund/British Council/OHEC project:
We started a new collaboration project with KMUTT on sustainable water quality management in aquaculture without excessive use of disinfectants and antibiotics. The collaboration builds on the outcomes of our earlier work described below.
