New round of Environmental Venture Projects from Stanford's Woods Institute
Date:7/14/2008

l and Environmental Transformation in Chile's Aquaculture Industry, 1950-2000: Farmed salmon is Chile's third largest export, but the explosive growth of the industry has led to sweeping environmental and social changes. This project will compare Chile's coastal communities before and after the advent of the salmon farming industry, which is targeting a two-fold increase by 2010.

Principal investigator: Zephyr Frank (History).

Research team: Roz Naylor (Woods Institute and Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies), Richard White (History), Meg Caldwell (Law School), Harold Mooney (Biology).

  • Understanding the Effects of Fishing on Coral Reef Ecosystems: Overfishing is a serious threat to the world's coral reefs, yet few detailed studies have been conducted on the direct impact of fishing on a coral reef ecosystem. Using ecological, biogeochemical and anthropological data, this project will compare two Pacific atolls-Palmyra, which has seen little human impact, and Tabuaeran, where fishing is widespread-with the goal of finding solutions for long-term sustainability of coral reef fisheries.

    Principal investigator: Fiorenza Micheli (Biology, Hopkins Marine Station).

    Research team: Doug Bird (Anthropology), Rob Dunbar (Environmental Earth System Science), William Durham (Anthropology).

  • Groundwater Discharge of Wastewater Contaminants Across the Land-Sea Interface: Many coastal communities use septic systems for treatment of wastewater, which can raise nutrient and pathogen levels when discharged into coastal aquifers, threatening human and ecosystem health. In the United States, no policies exist to regulate groundwater discharge from coastal aquifers into the sea. Focusing on California, this study seeks to identify federal and state laws that could be applied to the regulation of contaminated groundwater discharge, as well as key knowledge gaps in science and policy that hamper coastal management
