Aquaculture is the future of seafood sustainability: Some consumers have a knee-jerk reaction against aquaculture. It is a strange double standard, though, as they might refuse to eat farmed salmon but will gladly partake of factory farm chicken or pork, both which are far more questionable than farmed salmon. Consumers have been overwhelmed with negative media depictions of farmed fish, and they often don’t understand the realities.

Many of the criticisms lodged against aquaculture are no longer valid, yet those criticisms continue to circulate.
