An Ocean View of Global Food Security

EARTH is 70% OCEAN. 97% of all waters on OCEANS.

With a infinitesimally small footprint compared to agriculture, ocean food systems would provide for most of humanity’s future protein and vegetable foods. They are produced more efficiently, and are less consumptive of natural resources in comparisons to terrestrial foods. Ocean foods are superior foods for human health and wellness.

Fisheries do not need to expand. Damaged fisheries ecosystems need to be restored to be more efficient and generate less wastes, which are PERVERSE in many fisheries. A large expansion of aquaculture can be done without any further pressure on marine fisheries, or on agriculture.

Ocean foods are more rational investments for the future of food with the enormous benefit of the preservation of the world’s remaining, undeveloped and invaluable, terrestrial ecosystems.
