Recirculating aquaculture systems in theory solve many environmental impact issues, yet they're not immune to NIMBY (not in my backyard).
A two-year grant of $276,000 seeks to improve the nutrition of live feed for, and therefore the production of, larval California yellowtail and halibut, with the hopes that the technology will be applicable to other species.
With all eyes on Japan for the 2020 Olympic Games, leading advocates for responsible aquaculture there see a key opportunity to make stronger sustainability commitments.

After 14 years with the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service, Rick Barrows talks about the importance of finding ‘complete’ and commercially viable alternative sources of omega-3 fatty acids and continuing innovation in the aquafeed sector.
Fishmeal sparing in aquafeed is often limited by the presence of anti-nutritional factors found in plant-derived feedstuffs. Fermentation may be a cost-effective means of addressing such factors and improving utilization of plant ingredients in feed.
The University of the Canary Islands in Spain is researching yellowtail broodstock management and larval rearing to promote aquaculture diversification in Europe.
