Aquaculture is the world’s fastest-growing food-production system, with enormous potential to provide sustainable, nutritious and safe food to a growing global population. However, the aquaculture industry must overcome challenges to ensure sustainability throughout the supply chain. Feed and farming processes have been under the spotlight in particular. Policymakers have an important role in ensuring the sustainable management of aquaculture and in boosting acceptance of farmed fish among consumers.
I moderated this World Ocean Summit Insight Hour, which examined how to increase sustainability in aquaculture supply chains. It will highlight the role of retailers in influencing best-practice operations throughout the value chain. Speakers identified key steps for seafood processors, fish farmers, feed suppliers and technology developers as they scale production.
