An approach for evaluating multiple innovations of an aquaculture farm is proposed, based on a
model of induced innovations, supplemented with a bio-economic table for the calculation of production
function. Data gathered from a model eel farm were used as an example. The proposed
approach enables evaluating each innovation to determine which is the most profitable.
