The Need for Aquaculture
Wild-caught fisheries cannot sustain the increasing pressure of global seafood demands. By 2030, an additional 41 million tons of fish per year will be needed to maintain current levels of seafood consumption. Wild fish capture reached its maximum volume cap in the mid-1980s and cannot grow to meet this increased demand.
Responsible fish farming is the only way to bridge the gap between the wild supply shortfall, critical consumer demand, and health needs. Increasing the availability of soy-fed, farm-raised fish will fulfill this growing need while conserving natural resources.
