Aquaculture obstacles, roadmap to growth detailed in new

book by George S. Lockwood

By Aaron Orlowski

Published on Thursday, March 09, 2017

 

Regulations and a negative public image hold back aquaculture in the U.S. even though it’s needed now more than ever, argues aquaculture pioneer George S. Lockwood in a new book published in February.

 

A former president of the World Aquaculture Society, Lockwood worked in aquaculture for 45 years. He launched Monterey Abalone Farms in 1972 and eventually farmed abalone, salmon, sea urchin and oysters in Hawaii using a technique that pumped water from the deep ocean into on-shore tanks and ponds.

 

The new book, “Aquaculture: Will it rise to its potential to feed the world?” stems from Lockwood’s experience as an aquaculture entrepreneur and scientist.

 

Aquaculture is the likely world’s fastest-growing food production industry, surpassing the amount of fish captured from the sea in 2014. When done properly, it can have a lower environmental impact than fishing for wild seafood and farming on land. More of is needed to feed a growing global population, Lockwood argues.

 

In the U.S., aquaculture is constrained by government regulations that make establishing new aquaculture operations difficult, Lockwood writes. Additionally, aquaculture opponents have planted a negative image in the public’s eye, which influences regulators, consumers and investors, who then withhold capital.

 

Do they really mean to discourage consumption of the healthiest foods available with high levels of omega-3 fatty acids that are produced in the most environmentally sustainable manner?” Lockwood asks.
