Nitrogen is one of the greatest environmental challenges of the twenty-first century, according to researchers at the Edinburgh Centre for Ecology and detailed in the journal Nature. Thus, the Aquaculture Advisory Council (AAC) provides a list of recommendations to help reduce excess nitrogen emissions into the environment. This reduction mainly involves changes in agricultural practices (implementation of composting and biological treatment systems, reduction in the use of nitrogen fertilisers and intensive livestock farming) but also through changes in our lifestyles: favouring low-polluting transport and reducing consumption of animal proteins.
