We are transforming the aquaculture sector by reducing its carbon footprint, transitioning to circular economy, and ensuring food security and safety.
Supporting sustainable seafood consumption
Aquaculture, the farming of aquatic animals and plants such as fish, shellfish, seaweed and algae in water environments, could meet up to two-thirds of global seafood consumption by 2030. However, aquaculture practices are often inefficient and can have a significant impact on the environment and aquatic biodiversity. By supporting entrepreneurs and industry stakeholders and educating consumers, we can better scale sustainable aquaculture practices to ensure the future of seafood is secured.
