Aquaculture or fish farming in fish farms has always had very bad press, often due to ignorance of the process and other important information. It should be noted that with respect to the production of land-based farms, fish farming presents a series of advantages that we at RiverFresh defend and try to communicate to our consumers, so that they can share with us what this type of fish farming is really about and demonstrate that it will guarantee the survival of our marine ecosystems.
AQUACULTURE AS A GUARDIAN OF THE RIVERS AND SEAS
WHAT IS "Blue Revolution"?
"The term "blue revolution" refers to the intense growth in aquaculture as a widespread and highly productive activity that has developed all over the world in the last 30 years.
The growth of this activity has been fuelled by the development of more efficient technologies in breeding and fattening, based on the implementation of animal improvement programmes, the use of new species, better food products, new cultivation techniques... "
- 9 billionpeople in the world by 2050
With an increase in the demand for fish products per capita (from 5.2 kg in 1961 to 18.8 kg in 2013) and the stagnation of extractive (marine) fishing production since the 1980s
- Marine resources are being depleted
Aquaculture was and is still seen as the activity that should grow to cater for this growing demand. It is thus necessary to turn this sector into an industry that directs its efforts towards sustainability, as is the case today with agriculture.
