The Future of Food: Aquaculture

Our oceans cover over 70% of the Earth's surface and contain 99% of the living space on our planet. Less than 1% of the Earth's water is fresh water and 2.5% percent is glacial or present in our ice caps. With climate change wreaking havoc on global economies, our planet growing, our arable land shrinking, land based production farming and factory animal farms negatively impacting our environment, how will we feed our increasingly hungry planet. With biospheres of many types shrinking or disappearing altogether, is AQUACULTURE the future of food?

Join Andrew Zimmern as he leads a panel discussion on the current impact of aquaculture on our system, and its future in helping to feed our world.
