Hall, S.J. and Delaporte, A. and Phillips, M.J. and Beveridge, M. and O'Keefe, M. (2011) Blue frontiers: managing the environmental costs of aquaculture. Penang, Malaysia, The WorldFish Center, 92pp.
The report begins with an overview of the current status of world aquaculture. It then goes on to describe an approach for estimating the current combined biophysical resource demands of aquaculture for producer countries and regions. Following a comparison of these results with those available for other animal food production sectors the report then examines the consequences of likely future trends in production on the environmental impacts of aquaculture. Finally, the policy implications of the report’s findings are discussed along with the research agenda that should be pursued to meet the challenge of sustainable food production.
