Aquaculture Innovations: Doing More With Less

Scott Nichols

More with less—that’s the demand on agricultural production, according to Scott Nichols, founder of Food’s Future. The future requires much more food, and we must produce it without increasing agriculture’s inputs or its impacts. One solution to feed our growing population is aquaculture, or fish farming, with its frugal use of resource inputs. Historically, diets for fish like farmed salmon contained large amounts of fish proteins and oils derived from processed wild-caught fish. However, as we face the need for expanded food supplies, feeding wild-caught fish to farmed fish makes little sense. But alternatives exist. Recent biological innovations now provide dietary ingredients that can make aquaculture central to a hopeful food future. Nichols will discuss these innovations and share photographs and recipes demonstrating why seafood should be at the center of our diets.
