Marine Fish Aquaculture

The InVEST Marine Fish Aquaculture model estimates the weight and economic value of Atlantic salmon grown in netpen aquaculture facilities. Using data on farming practices, water conditions and existing economic markets, the model calculates the weight of harvested fish and the net revenue per cycle for each farm that is specified by users. The model also yields a map of the total harvested weight of aquacultured salmon, total net revenue, and net present value over a time period of interest.
