How Sustainable Is Aquaculture? | March 1, 2022
Dr. Roz Naylor, co-chair of the Blue Food Assessment, joined Aquaculture 2022 as a plenary speaker. She discussed her professional and personal journey in assessing the sustainability of aquaculture over the past two decades. Her comments reflected insights from two reviews on aquaculture published in Nature, the first in 2000 (“The effect of aquaculture on world fish supplies”) and the second in 2021 (“A 20-year retrospective review of global aquaculture“). She discussed the important role of professional collaborations as well as her work on aquatic foods as part of the global food system in shaping her views. The talk explored major areas of achievement as well as persistent challenges along the path toward a sustainable aquaculture sector.
