Feeding Future Generations in Harmony with the Ocean

2050 is fast approaching…

By the middle of this century, the world’s population is projected to reach approximately 10 billion people.  If current trends continue, the demand for food/protein will woefully outpace supply.

Modern agriculture cannot support this increased demand without significant and irreversible damage to our planet. Wild fisheries are near maximum yield and even the best management will not enable them to keep up with growing demand.

How will we feed a growing population?…

Pacific Ocean AquaFarms (POA) is convinced that offshore marine aquaculture will play a critical role in meeting this challenge.

Seafood is the most healthful form of animal protein and marine aquaculture is one of the most resource-efficient and environmentally friendly ways to produce it. Compared to terrestrial food production, it requires far less land, fresh water and feed, and leads to far fewer greenhouse gas emissions which threaten our climate. From a sustainability standpoint, aquaculture is an imperative.

Aquaculture is a vital solution.

POA is proud to pioneer sustainable marine aquaculture in the United States through sustainable practices that embody responsible ocean stewardship. By working with research institutions, government agencies, scientists, environmentalists, and practicing fishermen and farmers, we’ve developed a model for offshore aquaculture that will produce healthful seafood, create local jobs, and support working waterfronts.

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.
