The Year of the Sea Lecture Series: Sustainable farming of the sea from global to local
A talk by Lewis LeVay at MOSTYN, Wales UK on 25 October 2018.
Globally the majority of wild capture fisheries are either at their limit for sustainable production or are overexploited. In contrast, aquaculture has continued its rapid growth and half of all ‘seafood’ is now farmed. However, there is still a long way to go towards realising the full potential for food production at sea, with an estimated 11 million Km2 of coastal and open ocean waters being suitable for aquaculture expansion. What is limiting growth of this essential food production sector and what is the best way forward both globally and locally?
