This is the first SPOT (short public online tutorial) on IMTA (Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture). It is the result of a workshop I was invited to do in Newry the IBIS 2nd shellfish Knowledge Transfer Workshop. For more information on other IMTA SPOTs please visit the main page.
This first SPOT sets a context anchor, it explains briefly the basics of a food system. For further reading and picture credits see below.
