The Internet can serve as a communal gathering place, where like-minded community members can come together to discuss various pressing issues, share documents, take polls, and engage in the decision-making process as well. A recent project, GroupSpace, started at Stanford University as part of a research partnership with a local community organization, allows groups of individuals to do all of the above. As their mission statement suggests, the creation of the program is ̢ĺŰĺĎto support the type of deliberation critical to the functioning of smaller, informal organizations in civil society̢ĺŰĺ. It should be noted that this version of GroupSpace is a beta version.

This report discusses the negative and positive aspects of aquaculture as an alternative to harvesting wild stocks of fish. The report defines aquaculture and describes its recent growth, as well as its ecological impact. Practices to sustain aquaculture operations, such as habitat modification and the use of wild-caught seedstock are discussed. Changes to ocean food webs, the introduction of non-native fish and pathogens, and nutrient pollution from wastes are presented as negative consequences of aquaculture operations. The report discusses strategies to improve aquaculture, such as reducing fish meal and oil in fish feed, integrating production systems, and promoting sustainability within the industry. Issues in Ecology is an ongoing series of reports designed to present major ecological issues in an easy-to-read manner. This Issue summarizes the consensus of a panel of scientific experts based on the information that was current and available at the time of its publication in 2001.
