NEW ANALYSIS re. Atl. Salmon, seabream & cobia: ‘Climate change, population growth may lead to open ocean aquaculture” – OSU

  • “A key unresolved question is how large the industry and individual farms can become before they begin to negatively impact surrounding ecosystems”
  • “Offshore aquaculture will continue to be a small segment of the industry in the near-term, but there is only so much you can do on land and there are not enough wild fish to feed the world’s population. Assessing the potential is the first step toward reducing some of the uncertainties for the future.”
