Southern Russia has potential to further develop aquaculture with new production technologies and new species like catfish, pike-perch, tilapia and sturgeon.
Los autores cuantificaron el nicho ambiental e infirieron el índice de aptitud del hábitat global de las 102 especies marinas más cultivadas utilizando cuatro modelos de distribución de especies.
Authors quantified the environmental niche and inferred the global habitat suitability index of the 102 most farmed marine species using four species distribution models.
Don’t call it integrated multi-trophic aquaculture: Former commercial fisherman Bren Smith says polyculture of non-fed species is the future of aquaculture.
Global, sustainable mariculture production, developed on a massive, sustainable scale and using just a small fraction of the world’s oceanic areas, could eventually match the output of land-based agriculture production. Scale and international law considerations require the involvement of many
Seaweed aquaculture represents approximately half of the world mariculture production, but since seaweed farming is mostly concentrated in Asian countries, there is a lack of appreciation for this resource in the Western world.
In integrated multi-trophic aquaculture, farmers combine the cultivation of fed species such as finfish or shrimp with extractive seaweeds, aquatic plants and shellfish and other invertebrates that recapture organic and inorganic particulate nutrients for their growth.
Seaweed remains a relatively untapped resource with potential as edible food, feed ingredients, cosmetics, agrichemicals, biomaterials and bioenergy molecules.
Regulatory frameworks and financial incentives may be required to fully realize the benefits of integrated multi-trophic aquaculture systems.
