NEXT PRESENTATION – Monday, February 9, 2015. (Changed from February 2 due to The Treehouse building maintenance).
Dr. Karl Shearer, from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, and Bainbridge Island, will give a presentation titled “The contributions of aquaculture to the global food supply”. How much food does the world need and how does this compare to the amount currently being produced? Projections suggest that a 50-70% increase in food supply will be needed to meet the increase in global population by the end of this century. Terrestrial food production has increased dramatically with the advent of the green revolution of the 1960’s and 70's, but there are indications that the rate of increase is declining. Aquaculture (farming in water) has been practiced for more than two millennia, but the amount of food produced has been relatively modest and primarily of local importance. A blue revolution is now in progress and can make a significant contribution to global food supply if it undertaken in a responsible manner.
