Visit to carp farm in Guangdong

The SAFE team with participants from University of Stirling (UK), West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin (Poland) and Shanghai Ocean University engaged with carp farmers and their polyculture systems in Guangdong, China.

The main goal of this trip was knowledge exchange to learn about different strategies to improve sustainability and profitability.
