This study presents a framework for analyzing the interactions between aquaculture and capture fisheries in the context of ecosystem-based management. We extends a model of the economic and ecological systems in coastal New England by incorporating an aquaculture sector in a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model and by examining the forage fish and aquaculture link in a marine food web. We show that aquaculture and commercial fisheries interact in a complex way throughout the economic and ecological systems.
