In this series, we will explore different aspects of aquaculture and define key characteristics of a more sustainable approach to aquaculture.

Aquaculture is projected to be the prime source of seafood by 2030, as demand grows from the global middle class and wild capture fisheries approach their maximum take.

When practiced responsibly, fish and shrimp farming can help provide livelihoods and feed a growing global population that is estimated to reach 9 billion by 2050.

In the past, we have made a lot of environmental mistakes on land, and as we increase our focus on fish farming, we are presented with an opportunity to not make those mistakes again – in our relatively untouched oceans.

But for an aquaculture system to be truly sustainable, there are a few things to be considered.

In this first episode, we will look at various aspects of shrimp culture, and at how it affects the environment.
