Abstract

[Extract] The 'Blue revolution' is on its way! The speaker stated that capture fisheries and aquaculture have grown significantly over the last 30 years with global fisheries doubling its annual production since 1970 and aquaculture steadily increasing its production by approximately 10% per annum over the same time period. In the USA, aquaculture now exceeds the combined production of lamb, mutton and veal and by 2020 the Chinese authorities expect fish to become the country's main source of protein. China is the most important nation in aquaculture and has shown the largest growth (>70% in 2002). Traditionally, small local production was important in China but intensive multinational farms are now rapidly developing.
