Abstract

Aquaculture, the fastest growing food-producing sector, now accounts for almost 50 percent of the world’s food fish and is perceived as having the greatest potential to meet the growing demand for aquatic food. Given the projected population growth over the next two decades, it is estimated that at least an additional 40 million t of aquatic food will be required by 2030 to maintain the current per capita consumption.
