Abstract or Summary
  • The security of world fish supply from wild fisheries and from aquaculture is an increasing concern due to dwindling yields from wild catch and undesirable ecological impacts of aquaculture. The extent to which aquaculture can substitute for fish from wild catch will depend on the productivity of aquaculture, which in turn depends on the level and productivity of aquaculture and fisheries research. Scientific research in aquaculture and fisheries, as in other fields, has become a highly specialised enterprise that could not function without the collaboration of the geographically dispersed specialists. In this study we investigate one aspect of the extent and pattern of research collaboration among aquaculture and fisheries researchers and scientists. In particular, we measure the extent of coauthorships between researchers from the EU-15 and from Norway using ISI's Science Citation Index Expanded data from 1990 and 2000. Over the observed ten years, the number of publications related to fish and aquaculture has increased nearly six fold. But this considerable growth does not provide evidence, whether the publication pattern itself has changed. We use techniques and measures from social network analysis to identify patterns in aquaculture research collaboration.
