Octopuses grow quickly, have lots of tasty flesh and are found all over the world. As the world’s supply of fish diminishes while the number of humans keeps increasing, it seems these creatures would make an ideal mass-produced food for our hungry mouths.

So where are all the octopus farms?

The main thing that prevents octopus farming at large scale is that the common octopus – Octopus vulgaris – is tough to feed in captivity, especially when first born.  Read more …

A $20 million National Science Foundation EPSCoR grant will establish a Sustainable Ecological Aquaculture Network (SEANET) program in Maine. The multi-institutional, public-private partnership led by UMaine, in collaboration with the University of New England and other institutions in Maine, will use the state’s 3,500-mile coastline as a living laboratory to study physical oceanography, biophysical, biogeochemical, socioeconomic and policy interactions that have local, bioregional, national and global implications.  Read more …

The Fish Site logoFarmed salmon is rich in fat, but fillets of farmed salmon contain less marine omega-3 than previously, because a large fraction of the fish oil in the feed has been replaced by plant oil. Scientists have discovered a way of stimulating farmed salmon to convert plant oil in the feed to marine omega-3.

This means that farmed salmon may become a net producer of marine omega-3.  Read more … us online casinos echeck

The Fish Site logoSpeaking before the Global AgInvesting forum on the 29 April 2014, Øistein Thorsen from Benchmark’s Sustainability Science division trie, argues that continued industry success and global expansion will come from identifying investment and early development opportunities focused on addressing aquaculture’s challenges around disease, feed and waste management.

Aquaculture is at a crossroads. According to the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the last three decades have seen global food fish aquaculture production expand “by almost 12 times, at an average annual rate of 8.8 per cent.” As a relatively new industry facing the pressure of driving higher rates of production per unit area, it has the opportunity to learn from others’ mistakes and embrace the development of a new set of sustainable management practices.  Read more …

Seafood Source logoA U.N. report, due to be published today, will state there is conclusive proof that emissions of carbon dioxide from the industrialized world are turning the oceans more acidic, according to the BBC which claims to have seen a copy. The report warns that a mass extinction of sea life may be under way.

A massive 24 million metric tons (MT) of carbon dioxide produced by industrial practices are absorbed by the seas every day, says Roger Harrabin for the BBC’s Newsnight program. The gas dissolves into the water forming carbonic acid. – See more at: http://www.seafoodsource.com/en/all-commentary/25844-climate-change-killing-life-in-the-world-s-oceans?  Read more … the best online casinos for us players

Seafood Source logoA University of Missouri (MU) professor has invented a shrimp-farming system that not only grows shrimp quickly but also produces zero waste.

“No one in the U.S. has yet been able to demonstrate profitability with shrimp. Ninety percent of our shrimp [consumed in the U.S.] comes from Asia,” David Brune, professor of agricultural systems management at the University of Missouri, told SeafoodSource.  Read more …
