The Global Aquaculture Alliance’s annual GOAL production survey data shows that farmed marine finfish production increased 73 percent from 2009 to 2019.
Farmed finfish production has more than doubled since 2005 to an expected 38 million metric tons in 2018; 2019 production is expected to remain at 38 million metric tons.
Copernicus, el Sistema de Observación de la Tierra de 4.300 millones de euros de la Agencia Espacial Europea, tiene beneficios potenciales para la pesca y la acuacultura. El proyecto SAFI se está acercando al sector acuícola en relación al aprovechamiento
Copernicus – the European Space Agency’s €4.3 billion Earth Observation System – holds potential benefits for fisheries and aquaculture. The SAFI project is approaching the aquaculture sector about harnessing, and montetizing, this unique service from up above.
Organoleptic attributes such as flavor and aroma are among the most important factors that influence consumer acceptability and demand for fish products. Consumers have identified farmed fish as less complex and lacking “sealike” or “sea-fresh” flavors and aromas.
Fish oil sparing has proven difficult for fish species, like sea bass, that require the long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs) abundant in fish oil but lacking in most alternative fats and oils used in aquafeeds.
In trials, finishing diets improved the appearance of sea bass and sea bream with equivalent or higher performance than that achieved with standard grow-out diets.
