How Fish Farming can become Successful and Sustainable (again)

At least 3 billion people in the world eat fish as the main source of protein, but fishing has caused enormous damage to the ocean’s ecosystems. A report entitled Towards a Blue Revolution from The Nature Conservancy and Encourage Capital recommends three things to create a successful and sustainable fish farming industry in the US:

  • Fish tanks on land; farming fish in tanks on land using advanced filtering technology to filter the waste. In addition, they can be located closer to major markets to save transportation costs.
  • Breed big fish like salmon in the sea; usually this is done close to the coast. Moving to deeper water with stronger currents means better diffusion – something that can also prevent animal disease and parasites.
  • Rapidly expanding agricultural activities for shellfish and seaweed; products such as algae and oysters have unique properties that can offer ecological benefits for the environment and are more sustainable.
