ISER Lunchtime Talk: Fisheries economist Frank Asche of Norway suggests farmed fish will dominate the market by 2030

2012-10-28 by

For a long time, wild fisheries have been the world’s last significant hunting industry. But an increasing number of seafood species are now being farmed for commercial production. World seafood markets are in rapid transition, as knowledge from agriculture is used to enhance the competitiveness of aquaculture products throughout the supply chain. These changes, led by farmed salmon, are likely to influence all parts of the seafood market, creating opportunities and challenges for coastal communities—as well as the world’s fishing industries.

Frank Asche, a fisheries economist from Norway, suggests that farmed fish will dominate the global seafood market within the next few decades. His talk is called “Global Seafood Markets in 2030: Dominated by Aquaculture, with Wild Fish as niche Market Products?”

This talk was sponsored by the Institute for Social and Economic Research and recorded Oct. 26, 2012.
