Why do we need aquaculture?
Unfortunately, the days of the ocean's natural productivity providing for the planet is over. Wild fish have been exploited for generations now and some estimate that annual catch of edible marine protein has already passed its peak. The oceans cannot naturally provide the demand for seafood.
As ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau once wisely stated, "We must plant the sea and herd its animals using the sea as farmers instead of hunters."
Well said Jacques, well said.
