Nearly every coastal country in the world has the potential to meet its own domestic seafood needs through aquaculture, suggests a new study.

Aquaculture is the farming of freshwater and saltwater aquatic organisms, including fish, crustaceans and molluscs such as oysters and mussels. The practice is the fastest-growing food sector, and it is hoped that aquaculture could help address increasing issues of food insecurity around the globe.

New research now reveals that most coastal countries could meet their own domestic seafood needs using a tiny fraction of their ocean territory, demonstrating the oceans’ potential to support aquaculture.
