  • Enhancing competitiveness, product quality and market integration of small mussel growers: a South African case study

    The key proposition in this paper is that the competitiveness of small firms operating in emerging economies and producing highly perishable products (e.g. mussels) is largely contingent on their ability to contend with high Transaction Costs (TC). The study examines the role of contracting in reducing TC associated with small-scale mussel farming in South Africa. Market risks, uncertainties, ...

  • Modifications of macrobenthos assemblages on land–based fish farm phytotreatment basins in the Orbetello lagoon

    In the Orbetello lagoon basin there are some intensive land–based fish–farming facilities which contribute to cause a significant cyclic development of the opportunistic chorophycea Ulva laetevirens, and consequent serious decay events in spring and summer. To minimise the nutrients' impact, fish farming was supplied with phytotreatment system. The purpose of this study was to ...

  • Shrimp farming: Why prevention is better than medicine

    Disease challenges that have affected a number of key shrimp production regions around the world in recent years have increased the focus on producing healthier and more robust stocks. In addition to establishing very strict sanitary requirements, many shrimp farmers have sought new health-specific diets across the shrimp lifecycle that progress growth and reduce bacterial challenges. Some, ...

  • Use of Aquaclean in freshwater shrimp production

    The increase in popularity of freshwater shrimp (Macrobrachium Rosenbergii) production has prompted researchers to develop better and more efficient production methods. The current production methods are sufficient to justify the growing of freshwater shrimp, however, to stay competitive long term in the market place, producers will have to increase yields and reduce costs. Current niche markets ...

  • Rising Meat Consumption Takes Big Bite out of Grain Harvest

    http://www.earth-policy.org/data_highlights/2011/highlights22 World consumption of animal protein is everywhere on the rise. Meat consumption increased from 44 million tons in 1950 to 284 million tons in 2009, more than doubling annual consumption per person to over 90 pounds. The rise in consumption of milk and eggs is equally dramatic. Wherever incomes rise, so does meat consumption. ...

  • Overfishing Threatens Critical Link in the Food Chain

    The fish near the bottom of the aquatic food chain are often overlooked, but they are vital to healthy oceans and estuaries. Collectively known as forage fish, these species—including sardines, anchovies, herrings, and shrimp-like crustaceans called krill—feed on plankton and become food themselves for larger fish, seabirds, and marine mammals. Historically, people have eaten ...

  • The Role of Mangroves in Fisheries Enhancement

    In 2011 humans caught and consumed 78.9 million tonnes of fish, crustaceans, molluscs and other species groups from the world’s oceans, accounting for 16.6% of the world’s animal protein intake (FAO 2012). This is projected to increase further, to over 93 million tonnes by 2030 (World Bank 2013). Global demand for fish products has increased dramatically over recent decades. Fishing ...

  • Climate justice: creating urgency and safeguarding rights

    The United Nations climate change convention is 20 years old this month. As we see from the just-completed climate talks in Bonn, Germany, we still haven’t solved the problem, nor even agreed how to solve it. Meanwhile, the impacts of climate change become more apparent, hitting the poorest and most vulnerable the hardest. Within this statement lies a deep injustice: Those most affected by ...

  • Cultivating energy crop production

    A NEW Farm Bill is moving through the Congressional legislative process. Along the way, commercial agriculture is debating the energy impacts of future corn and soybean production. The growth of corn-based ethanol and soybean-based biodiesel has created competition for the feed inputs into animal agriculture, namely corn and soybeans. While most of agriculture discusses energy production from ...

  • Creating a Sustainable Food Future: Interim Findings - A menu of solutions to sustainably feed more than 9 billion people by 2050

    The world’s agricultural system faces a great balancing act. To meet different human needs, by 2050 it must simultaneously produce far more food for a population expected to reach about 9.6 billion, provide economic opportunities for the hundreds of millions of rural poor who depend on agriculture for their livelihoods, and reduce environmental impacts, including ecosystem degradation and ...

  • Towards climate-responsible peatlands management

    Peatlands are lands with a naturally accumulated peat layer at their surface. They are found all over the world and come in many forms, display many different characteristics and are used in many different ways. Even though peatlands extend over a relatively small portion of the earth’s land surface, they hold a large pool of carbon. There is no universal definition of peatlands. For the ...
