Heavy on the graphs

We have three graphs we would like to show here.

Together, they show how important aquaculture has become, and will be, for the entire world in the near future.

The debate over salmon farming is a tempest in a teapot. Whatever happens to salmon farming in particular, aquaculture in oceans, lakes, ponds and on land is going to happen, whether anti-aquaculture and anti-salmon farming activists want it or not.

Fisheries have peaked. The world’s population keeps growing, especially in the developing world. Not surprisingly, aquaculture is experiencing massive growth in the developing world.

This is the way of the future.
