Seafood sector can contribute to the global food supply in an important way, and provide an important source of animal protein. Based on observed regional trends in seafood production and consumption and using a global, partial-equilibrium, multi-market model, this study investigates what the global seafood market may look like in 2030. The model projects that the total fish supply will increase from 154 million tons in 2011 to 186 million tons in 2030, with aquaculture entirely responsible for the increase. The fastest aquaculture growth is expected for tilapia and shrimp, while the largest expansion is expected in India, Latin America and Caribbean and Southeast Asia. Fast-growing seafood demand in China and elsewhere represents a critical opportunity for global fisheries and aquaculture to improve their management and achieve sustainable seafood economy.

There are thousands of rickettsial, viral, bacterial, protozoan, and metazoan parasites that cause disease in farmed aquatic animals. While the basics of farm-level disease management are known, the interconnectedness among aquaculture installations and between aquaculture and the external environment means that only a few careless farms can ruin an industry. Considering the gravity and frequency of fish disease outbreaks, guidelines on the development and implementation of national policies for...

In this article we attempt to evaluate China's impact on global seafood trade. The estimated export similarity and relative price indices indicate structural change in the observed global seafood trade patterns. Accordingly, the inverse Almost Ideal Demand System model with a transition function is applied. The estimated demand flexibility indicates a rising substitutability between seafood products from China and other developing countries. By contrast, China's expansion has a less negative inf...

During the past one decade, the WorldFish Center and its research partners have made a systematic attempt to improve the productivity of carps through selective breeding in the major carp-producing countries in Asia. This paper analyses the potential impact of culturing the improved carp strain in five Asian countries (Bangladesh, China, India, Thailand and Vietnam), using a three-step procedure. These steps are: (i) development of a fish sector model for each country, (ii) construction of ex an...

Abstract The genetic response in growth traits in a selection program for increased harvest weight in a common carp population in Vietnam is reported. A base population (G0) was established from six carp stocks using single pair mating. Selection was based on high breeding values for body weight at harvest, with a corresponding control group selected on average breeding values of the population. In the following two selected generations (G1 and G2), families were produced using a partial factori...

Abstract We estimated the heritability and correlations between body and carcass weight traits in a cultured stock of giant freshwater prawn (GFP) ( Macrobrachium rosenbergii) selected for harvest body weight in Vietnam. The data set consisted of 18,387 body and 1,730 carcass records, as well as full pedigree information collected over four generations. Variance and covariance components were estimated by restricted maximum likelihood fitting a multi-trait animal model. Across generations, estim...

This article builds on the literature investigating productivity and efficiency in the Norwegian salmon farming industry. The objective of this article is to investigate the determinants of inefficiency. We use a stochastic frontier approach that allows the estimation of a production function and an inefficiency function. The sources of inefficiency can be separated into temporary shocks and factors that lead to permanent efficiency differences. The results indicate an improvement in technical e...

Aquaculture is among the most sustainable of animal protein production systems. Growth of aquaculture is needed to meet employment and food security targets in developing countries. Investment risk co-varies with environmental risk to influence sustainability. Existing certification standards do not effectively address ecosystem sustainability. Priorities of local communities should inform target setting for employment and conservation. Locally adapted aquaculture zone management can reduce envi...

1. Aquaculture is replacing capture fisheries in supplying the world with dietary protein. Although disease is a major threat to aquaculture production, the underlying global epidemiological patterns are unknown. 2. We analysed disease outbreak severity across different latitudes in a diverse range of aquaculture systems. 3. Disease at lower latitudes progresses more rapidly and results in higher cumulative mortality, in particular at early stages of development and in shellfish. 4. Tropical cou...

The inclusion of PepSoyGen (PSG), a commercially-available fermented soybean meal product, was evaluated with juvenile rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss in an initial 70-day feeding trial, with a supplemental trial involving a subset of the experimental diets continuing for an additional 40 d. Six diets containing 0%, 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, or 50% PSG, with the PSG directly replacing fish meal, were used in the first trial. There were no significant differences in weight gain or feed conversion ra...

Abstract Corresponding to projected global population growth, the world's food production systems must likewise enlarge substantially if current levels of dietary protein intake are to be maintained. The anticipated growth curve for global aquaculture, and especially for shrimp farming, which is forecast to double production by 2030, will inevitably result in shortfalls in currently favored dietary ingredients: fishmeal (FM) and fish oil (FO). Servicing the projected FM-FO shortfall with marine ...

Abstract Oyster farming is one of the oldest forms of aquaculture and oysters are farmed around the globe. As with aquaculture in general, oyster aquaculture production has increased rapidly in recent decades. Despite this, global trends in this production and its markets have received limited attention. This paper presents an overview of global oyster aquaculture production at a country-scale, as well as factors influencing the observed trends. Currently, global oyster aquaculture production is...

Abstract The European Blue Growth Strategy requires innovative proposals contributing to sustainable development of the aquaculture activity. Within this context, ditch shrimp (Palaemonetes varians) meal obtained from extensively managed aquaculture wetlands was assessed as a potential source to substitute dietary fishmeal (FM) in compound diets for Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis) juveniles. Estuarine ditch shrimp biomass from an integrated aquaculture system was converted into a meal that ...

Abstract This paper investigates the development of production costs in aquaculture of Atlantic salmon between the five main producer countries. A unique data set allows us to analyse the development in the period 2003 to 2018. Costs have developed differently between countries, with Chile and the Faroe Islands standing out with strong and different changes. Chile sees a strong increase in cost and moves from being the lowest to the highest cost producer, and then to lowest again. The Faroe Isla...

Debates on seafood in the Global South tend to prioritize food security, whereas debates on seafood in the Global North emphasize sustainability. We track the evolution of both debates and propose the concept of ‘sustainable commoditization’ to reconcile them. We identify three pillars of action that are necessary for sustainable commoditization of seafood in the Global South, namely: (1) sustainable intensification; (2) supply chain transformation; and (3) supporting policy and regulation. We b...

Abstract For a long-term growth in shrimp farming, a significant increase in shrimp output can only be fully realized by improving both technical and cost efficiency. This study employs data envelopment analysis with the double bootstrapping technique to analyze cost and technical efficiency for aquaculture. This procedure allows statistical inferences about cost and technical efficiency to be made. The case of intensive white-leg shrimp farming in Ninh Thuan, Vietnam is used for analysis. The r...
The present study was aimed to compare and evaluate the impacts of supplemented diets with different yeast hydrolysate (YH) levels on growth performance, body composition, hematological characteristics, antioxidant enzyme activities, and non-specific immunity (intestinal cytokines) of juvenile Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus). Three isonitrogenous (protein, 33%) and isolipidic (lipid, 6%) experimental diets supplemented graded levels of YH (0% for control; 1% and 3% as tested diets) were fed...

Fish skin and gut microbiomes contribute to host health and growth and are often significantly different in aquaculture-reared fish compared to wild fish. Determining how factors associated with aquaculture, including altered diet and abiotic conditions, affect the microbiome will assist with optimizing farming practices and non-invasively assessing fish health. Here, juvenile yellowtail kingfish (Seriola lalandi) housed at optimal (22 degrees C) and non-optimal (26 degrees C) water temperature ...
