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.
With best practices, responsible stewardship and diligent consideration for the environment, we can:
DO IT HERE. DO IT RIGHT. DO IT NOW.
