Episode 901: The Future of Seafood
It is estimated there will be two billion more people on the planet by mid-century. To feed this booming world population, more fish will need to be farmed than ever before. Scientists at the University of Miami’s Experimental Hatchery are developing new and innovative techniques to help meet future demand. The scientists often collaborate with the private sector, including Open Blue, a company that raises cobia along Panama’s Caribbean coast. Open Blue’s approach to farming fish in a sustainable way is to move aquaculture operations offshore – where there is plenty of available space and strong currents flush out the pens to avoid polluting sensitive ecosystems.
