Dr Huiwen Cai (Co-PI) is a professor of Marine Environmental Science. Her research interests include the interactions between marine aquaculture and the environment, sustainable marine aquaculture development, environmental carrying capacity, coupled hydrodynamic process in the culturing production, ecological modelling etc. With about 20 peer-reviewed papers on these topics.
Member of the Ecological Society of China. She is PI of the NSFC project (Grant no. 41206088), focusing on the interactions between marine cage farming and the surrounding environment by developing the growth and wastes generation model for Large Yellow Croakers as well as the field observation. PI of the Zhejiang Provincial Natural Science Foundation ( Grant no. LQ12D06001) focusing on the development of hydrodynamics model for wastes transportation simulation by fish farming process. She was founded by MASTS, Scotland on development of a bioenergetics model on nutrient loading assessment from cage farming in China. PI of two projects supported by Bureau of Science and Technology of Zhoushan (Grant no. 2015C41002 and 10250) focussing on the development of Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture with local species. As in the joint UK-China project, focusing on modelling the ecological effects of the combined marine renewable energy platform with marine aquaculture.
