Restorative Aquaculture for Nature and Communities


"Aquaculture is not only the fastest-growing form of food production—it can also be one of the most environmentally efficient ways of producing animal protein. This is especially true for bivalves and seaweed, which are near-zero input forms of farming—their production requires almost no feed, freshwater or land and results in minimal greenhouse gas emissions."

"With greater attention on regenerative food systems and restorative aquaculture, there is the risk that increased demand could lead to confusion regarding these terms and their intent. An expert working group led by The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has produced the Global Principles of Restorative Aquaculture, a report intended to define restorative aquaculture, provide implementation guidance, establish parameters, and forge a common understanding for this important ocean restoration and food production solution."
