Aquaculture’s technology spotlight tends to focus on offshore cages, satellites, AI sensors and recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) for major finfish species – but this narrative overlooks aquatech’s ability to revolutionise small-scale production and safe…
The ocean has enormous – and largely untapped – potential to cycle and sequester excess atmospheric carbon through processes like seaweed cultivation. So how can stakeholders tap into this potential to scale CO₂ removal efforts and deliver climate wins?
Investors looking to support sustainable marine aquaculture and the blue economy need accurate ocean data to make evidence-based decisions and de-risk their financial offerings – but a lack of reliable data might be curtailing their efforts.
A side-by-side comparison of conventional and insect-based aquafeed ingredients has found that insect meals and oils come with a larger carbon footprint and require more energy to produce than marine ingredients – but this discrepancy might be short-lived.
Alexsandra Caseiro is one of the stalwarts of the Brazilian aquaculture sector, spending two decades in the feed sector, before setting up her own consultancy firm, operating mainly in in Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, Mexico and Brazil.
Despite only representing about 1 percent of global seaweed cultivation volumes, green macroalgae (Chlorophyta) could play a decisive role in the commercial seaweed sector as it expands and diversifies.
