Seas and oceans for future animal proteins

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


Will the oceans feed the world? Optimistic views on a ‘Blue Revolution’ have recently been challenged and in particular the future role of marine fish culture is questioned. Important steps in raising global production of protein-rich animal seafood can only be expected from aquaculture of low-trophic organisms such as shellfish. Additional to the provisioning of healthy marine protein products, shellfish culture has many benefits as it causes little environmental impact, and provides the opportunity to contribute to ecosystem services.
