I've been involved in the commercial aquaculture industry for nearly 40 years. In that time I've seen it grow from a fledgling enterprize producing 10% of the seafood consumed to the $169b giant it is today. Farmed produce now makes up 50% of the seafood consumed globally. At a CAGR of 5.3%, it is predicted that by 2022 it will be worth $240b. I have worked in many sectors of the industry and my current occupation, as an aquaculture journalist, keeps me in touch with industry trends world wide.
