by N.Morgan

Aquaculture is also known as aquafarming or fish farming. Could this be the future of food production to meet the growing global seafood demand?

A new report, titled “Towards a Blue Revolution” from The Nature Conservancy and Encourage Capital” from  The Nature Conservancy and Encourage Capital.

Aquaculture to meet food supply demands

The global leader for The Nature Conservancy’s aquaculture program, Robert Jones, said: “One of the top things we’re doing as an organization is to try to find solutions to feeding 9 billion people on the planet by 2050 in the most sustainable way possible.”

How does aquaculture, or fish farming, work?

Fish farming on land is known as recirculating aquaculture systems. Jones explained the process: “Basically you are growing fish in tanks on land using advanced filtration technology to filter the waste…The new science on this is showing that water quality impacts beyond 90 meters from [these farms] are generally highly reduced, and some of the most recent studies coming out are showing that there is no measurable impact on water quality around these farms when they’re offshore, which is pretty remarkable.”

The market opportunity for fish farming

According to Fast Company, the global aquaculture sector is growing at a rate of approximately 6% annually and in the United States, ninety percent of the current seafood supply is imported. It states that recirculating aquaculture systems and offshore fish farms currently represent less than one percent of all fish production, however, they argue that the price and learning curve for both methods is decreasing.

Jones concludes: “By our calculations, it’s going to take about $150 billion to $300 billion in investments and capital alone to meet the demand for seafood by 2030. This is a very big market opportunity, and a very big opportunity for conservation if we can direct the capital into the more sustainable production systems.”

      Hello Angle#3,

      Charlie here. Most major aquaculture foods involve UNCLEAN foods and the ones they do farm are that are unclean are farmed with antibiotics, fake food coloring, and soy pellet crap. Not natural at all. Much like the way they raise chickens, cows and what not.

      So, I wouldn’t eat any farmed fish. And don’t get me started on the farmed UNCLEAN food which no one should be eating. :mad: :mad:

      I, myself, is having second thoughts on farmed doughnuts. Don’t know if it would be natural. But they do taste good. But I’m only experimenting now.


      Charlie (having trouble with their DNA – Doughnut Nucleic Acid) :lol: :lol:
