Farmed Fish Production Overtakes Beef

Fish Farming

Story at-a-glance -

  • Global farmed fish production topped beef production in 2011, and in 2012, there were 66 million tons of farmed fish produced globally compared to 63 million tons of beef
  • Like the land-based concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs), industrial fish farming leads to overcrowded conditions, disease, pollution and unnatural diets
  • Pathogens from fish farms easily transfer to, and kill, wild species, while waste from the farms generates bacteria that consume oxygen vital to shellfish and other bottom-dwelling sea creatures
  • Farmed fish are fed unnatural diets including genetically modified (GM) soy, altering the nutritional content of the fish and allowing GM food to enter the environment and diets of wild marine organisms, permanently contaminating our oceans with completely unknown consequences
