The Future of Aquaculture

Seafood currently provides around three billion people with 15 per cent of their protein needs, but because 90 per cent of global fisheries are overexploited, aquaculture is being used at a rapidly increased rate to supply this protein.

 

Traditional aquaculture techniques focus on single species and cause environmental damage, so we are working on sustainably developing multi-trophic aquaculture which will increase production, whilst simultaneously decrease the damage to the environment through pollution and the destruction of marine habitats.
