Stefano Mariani at Global Food Security shows us a thoughtful article about whether fishing should cease for a few years in European seas to let stocks recover. No, he says, what a daft idea. We’d merely be exporting the damage of overfishing to foreign seas and oceans.
Dr Mariani does consider that aquaculture could be an important factor in improving the world’s food supply. But he points out that existing systems for aquaculture rely heavily on wild-caught fish to feed the tasty farmed ones.
This week eivindburkow at The Coastal House tells us that the European Union (EU) is considering how aquaculture might help to fight hunger.
