Feeding Future Generations in Harmony with the Ocean

As the world’s population grows towards a projected 9.5 billion in 2050 the demand for food/protein grows exponentially. Agriculture cannot support the demand without significant increases in land/water use and GHG emissions. Wild fisheries are at or near maximum yield, and even the best management will not enable them to keep up with growth. How will we meet this increasing demand and do it in the most environmentally responsible way?

Aquaculture, not only provides not only has the lowest environmental impacts of any animal protein production. It requires far less land, fresh water and feed, and causes much lower greenhouse gas emissions. From a sustainability standpoint, aquaculture is an imperative.

Pacific Ocean AquaFarms (POA) is proud to be working with research institutes, government agencies, scientists, environmentalists, and practicing fishermen and farmers to develop and promote aquaculture in the United States, through safe and sustainable practices and responsible ocean stewardship.

“With Earth’s burgeoning populations to feed, we must turn to the sea with new understanding and new technology. We must learn to farm the sea as we have farmed the land.”

With best practices, responsible stewardship and diligent consideration for the environment, we can:

DO IT HERE. DO IT RIGHT. DO IT NOW.
