Could aquaculture be a sustainable solution ?
As the New York Times notes aquaculture might be a good solution to avoid the depletion of fish stocks and thus be a sustainable way to feed the billion of people that will be born this century.
However fish farming poses several problems such as diseases, water pollution, heavy antibiotics use and also may harm wild fish populations when it is done to preserve them.
Environmentalists thus believe drastic improvements have to occur if it wants to become the alternative to wild-caught fish. They may soon come from a company from Singapore.
