The hype and realities of aquaculture in your community (free webinar)
Almost every month the press announces a new, usually large-scale, aquaculture development planned for a community near you, especially if you live on the world’s marine coasts or freshwater great lake. Stories usually lead with the background to the local development that: (a) because of the huge demand for food for a growing world population to 2050 and beyond, we need aquaculture here in your place; and ever more so as the world’s fisheries (and those here locally) have collapsed; and (b) aquaculture has been growing so fast, the world (meaning, you) now get half of its (and your) fish/seafood from aquaculture. Maps are often attached to these press reports that show dots scattered across a coastal area, proving aquaculture’s massive proliferation and implications that it is urgent/vital for you to vote to give it’s proliferation more space. That’s the hype. What’s the reality? This talk will explore some inconvenient truths and discuss the realities of ocean aquatic food production in 2021 and realistic scenarios for our future.
