Global research effort sets the stage for an aquatic food future
- Impact Area
Food systems account for half of the earth’s biocapacity and are responsible for 25 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions, straining the planet’s ability to sustain the human population. As a result, a growing body of research is supporting the call for a food systems transformation that changes the way the world produces, consumes and thinks about food, with aquatic foods playing a critical role in the transition. Aquatic foods are essential in promoting the shift towards healthy, equitable and sustainable food systems.
