According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the fisheries and aquaculture sector is the key to ensure a food secure future for all. The role of aquaculture in ensuring a sustainable supply of fish and fishery products for human consumption cannot be overstated. Along with the positive aspects of aquaculture comes the negative ones. Fish farms can pollute water systems and contribute to environmental degradation due to improper site selection. However, these negative impacts can be addressed by adopting standards that provide measures to attain recommended quality, ensure food safety, secure environmental management, and protect worker’s health and welfare.
