dc.description.abstract Knowledge of aquaculture–environment interactions is essential for the development of a sustainable aquaculture industry and efficient marine spatial planning. The effects of fish and shellfish farming on sessile wild populations, particularly infauna, have been studied intensively. Mobile fauna, including crustaceans, fish, birds and marine mammals, also interact with aquaculture operations, but the interactions are more complex and these animals may be attracted to (attraction) or show an aversion to (repulsion) farm operations with various degrees of effects. This review outlines the main mechanisms and effects of attraction and repulsion of wild animals to/from marine finfish cage and bivalve aquaculture, with a focus on effects on fisheries‐related species. Effects considered in this review include those related to the provision of physical structure (farm infrastructure acting as fish aggregating devices (FADs) or artificial reefs (ARs), the provision of food (e.g. farmed animals, waste feed and faeces, fouling organisms associated with farm structures) and some farm activities (e.g. boating, cleaning). The reviews show that the distribution of mobile organisms associated with farming structures varies over various spatial (vertical and horizontal) and temporal scales (season, feeding time, day/night period). Attraction/repulsion mechanisms have a variety of direct and indirect effects on wild organisms at the level of individuals and populations and may have implication for the management of fisheries species and the ecosystem in the context of marine spatial planning. This review revealed considerable uncertainties regarding the long‐term and ecosystem‐wide consequences of these interactions. The use of modelling may help better understand consequences, but long‐term studies are necessary to better elucidate effects. en_US
dc.description.sponsorship The core of this paper was developed during the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) Working Group on Aquaculture (WGAQUA) workshops that were held in Vigo, Spain, in April 2014, Rhode Island, USA, in March 2015, and Yerseke, The Netherlands, in April 2016. Thanks go to the WGAQUA. This paper has also been improved during a workshop held in Palavas in February 2016. MC and CWM would like to thank the GDRI RECHAGLO (International Research Group in the field of fisheries and aquaculture ‘Responses to the global population change and fisheries and aquaculture communities and their habitats, 2015‐2019’) for financial support. en_US
