Title

Farming fish for the future

Author

Halweil, Brian

Description

As the demand for seafood increases, the number of fish farms has risen. Though farmed seafood has advantages over wild fish, fish farms may be jeopardizing their own futures by their own actions. The growing scarcity of fish feed, an increase in coastal pollution, and decreases in genetic diversity leading to potential disease may affect the industry.
