Henriksson is a postdoctoral researcher at the Beijer Intistitute of Ecological Economics and Stockholm Resilience Centre. His background is in marine biology, with credits from Lund University (Sweden), Stockholm University (Sweden), UBC (Canada), and Bangor University (Wales).
Building upon his MSc, he later completed a PhD at Leiden University (the Netherlands), evaluating aquaculture products using life cycle assessment (LCA). After his disputation in 2015, he received funding from VINNOVA-VINNMER and WorldFish (Malaysia) for a post-doc position shared between the Beijer Institute, Stockholm Resilience Centre, and WorldFish.
From 2018, he continues as a researcher within the SeaWin project, funded by Swedish research agency, Formas. For the last few years, Henriksson has evaluated seafood systems in Indonesia, Bangladesh, Egypt, and Sweden. His research has also involved food production more generally, and antimicrobial use. He is also a proud member of Beijer Young Scholars (BYS).”

Seafood sustainability is still only marginally considered in global policy talks on food production, trade and consumption. That needs to change
2020 - Journal / article
Development of new biocides has dominated human responses to evolution of antibiotic and pesticide resistance. Increasing and uniform biocide use, the spread of resistance genes, and the lack of new classes of compounds indicate the importance of navigating toward more sustainable coevolutionary dynamics between human culture and species that evolve resistance. To inform this challenge, we introduce the concept of coevolution...

The dominant sustainable seafood narrative is one where developed world markets catalyze practice improvements by fisheries and aquaculture producers that enhance ocean health. The narrow framing of seafood sustainability in terms of aquaculture or fisheries management and ocean health has contributed to the omission of these important food production systems from the discussion on global food system sustainability. This omiss...

Indonesia is the world's second largest producer and third largest consumer of seafood. Fish is thus essential to the nation, both financially and nutritionally. Overfishing and the effects of climate change will, however, limit future capture fisheries landings, so any increases in future seafood production will need to come from aquaculture. Aquaculture's ecological effects are dependent upon the choice of species, managemen...

Aquaculture is receiving increased attention from a variety of stakeholders. This is largely due to its current role in the global food system of supplying more than half of the seafood consumed, and also because the industry continues to steadily expand (UN Food and Agriculture Organization 2018). A recent article in Environmental Research Letters, 'Feed conversion efficiency in aquaculture: do we measure it correctly?', by F...
