Topic: Aquaculture: The Blue Revolution – a Game Changer in the Seafood Supply
The world's population is consuming seafood at the highest per capita rates ever. But where does it all come from? Only a few decades ago, most of it came by hunting and gathering wild resources from the oceans and freshwaters around the planet. Now, more than 50% of global demand for seafood is supplied through farming technologies. Come and learn how this game-changing form of agriculture is revolutionizing the way we eat! Richard is a Professor, Aquatic and Fisheries Science and Director, Aquaculture Centre at the University of Guelph.
