Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The world’s current global population is 8.1 billion, and it is expected to reach 9.6 billion by 2050. Food sources will not be sufficient for this rapid population growth and feeding the planet will be an intractable problem. Aquaculture could be a sustainable solution, as it is the most fast-growing food production sector. According to FAO, approximately 550 aquatic species are currently farmed all over the world, and over half of the aquatic foods used for human consumption are farmed. The total world aquaculture production reached 185.4 million tonnes in 2023, but this has to be increased in order to address the rapid growth of the Earth's population. The climate crisis makes imperative the need for novel, modern and sustainable technologies in order to maximize production and sustainably manage the aquatic environment. These new technologies will be vital in the future role of aquaculture.
