Seafood Sustainability and the Role of Fish Farming
When it comes to sustainable seafood, wild-caught fish and farmed fish (or aquaculture) are both important. Laurel Bryant, with NOAA Fisheries, describes how it’s not an “either-or” scenario – consumers should feel confident purchasing both wild and farm fish. Aquaculture is highly technical and follows the same robust U.S. environmental laws that wild-caught seafood does. These production types work together to feed a growing global population.
