Swimming in Circles: Aquaculture and the End of Wild Oceans

Story at-a-glance -

  • The two most dangerous foods served in most restaurants are factory farmed chicken, which is responsible for a majority of foodborne illnesses, and farmed salmon, which is among the most toxic foods on the planet
  • Three decades ago, many towns would have local fish markets that sold a wide variety of locally caught fish. Most fish markets have now been replaced by chain stores that use computerized systems to maintain a consistent supply, and this industrialization pushed aquaculture forward
  • Aquafarms are frequently imposed in locations where people are desperate for jobs. Alas, they inevitably end up destroying healthy wild fisheries in those same areas
  • While most aquafarms are located in open water, land-based operations are becoming more common, especially with the introduction of genetically engineered salmon, which are not allowed to be raised in open water due to their environmental impact, should they get free
  • As a consumer, one of the best things you can do is to locate a local community-supported fishery. You can also buy wild-caught fish online
