Weekly Overview: New Study Highlights the Path for Sustainable Aquaculture

ANALYSIS - In this week's news, new research by World Resources Institute (WRI), WorldFish, the World Bank, INRA and Kasetsart University shows that farmed fish and shellfish production will likely need to increase by 133 per cent between 2010 and 2050 in order to meet projected fish demand worldwide, writes Lucy Towers, TheFishSite Editor.
 

Exploratory analysis of resource demand and the environmental footprint of future aquaculture development using Life Cycle Assessment

Increases in fish demand in the coming decades are projected to be largely met by growth of aquaculture. However, increased aquaculture production is linked to higher demand for natural resources and energy as well as emissions to the environment.

Improving productivity and environmental performance of aquaculture

Fish—including finfish and shellfish—are an important item in the human food basket, contributing 17 percent of the global animal-based protein supply in 2010. They are an especially valuable food source in developing countries, where more than 75 percent of the world’s fish consumption occurs.

Value chain analysis of the Egyptian aquaculture feed industry

The commercial aquaculture feed industry in Egypt is growing at a rapid rate. As a result, the  number of fish feed mills has increased from just 5 mills producing about 20,000 t per year in 1999,  to over 60 mills with a current production estimate of 800,000–1,000,000 t/year.
