Fish/seafood represents an increasingly important source of animal protein in diets globally. Aquaculture growth, which already constitutes half of all seafood consumed by humans, is critical to meet increasing demand for fish. Concern among consumers and regulators over the safety and environmental sustainability of seafood, particularly in developed nations, has led to the development of stringent seafood safety standards in the global North.
The study provides information, facts and linkages on contribution of biodiversity towards sustainable food production as well as recommendations for having biodiversity-based model for sustainable food production.
This paper examines the potential for improved environmental performance of smallholder aquaculture production through ‘beyond-farm’ governance. Smallholder aquaculture farmers face a range of systemic environmental risks related to disease and water quality that extend beyond the boundary of their farms. Yet most governance arrangements aimed at mitigating risks, such as certification, finance and insurance, are focused on the farm-level rather than the wider landscape within which farming takes place.
Irrigation systems and their reservoirs are complex, dynamic socio-ecological systems. With the right management, crop and fish production can both be increased, with the benefits shared equitably among nearby communities. A forthcoming guide will detail how to realize these outcomes by better integrating fisheries into irrigation systems at all scales.
Untuk memerangi tingkat kekurangan gizi dan stunting atau kekerdilan saat ini, pemerintah Indonesia telah menetapkan suatu target ambisius untuk pertumbuhan akuakultur di Indonesia hingga tahun 2030. Perikanan secara fundamental telah memberikan kontribusi pada kesejahteraan Indonesia dengan memberikan sumber protein tinggi yang terjangkau. Namun untuk mencapai target yang telah ditentukan, hasil produksi harus ditingkatkan lebih dari tiga kali lipat. Namun bagaimanapun, dalam memenuhi target produksi tersebut akan timbul suatu dampak pada lingkungan.
