With a growing population and an ever-increasing demand for seafood, it is clear that as of right now, the United States does not produce enough seafood to meet domestic demand. Expanding aquaculture in the United States has the potential to create new jobs, high-quality foods, and new markets for agricultural products like soybeans.
Why are antibiotic residues in farmed shrimp a big deal?
November 2019 // Global Aquaculture Alliance
The last 50 years has seen global aquaculture production grow rapidly with most reliable estimates putting total output in 2019 at close to or exceeding the levels that are “hunted (fished),” in the range of 100 million metric tons (MT) per year. This transition from a fishery to a farmed product has brought with it many of the challenges that face terrestrial agriculture as well as some that are uniquely aquatic.
A cloud hangs over the shrimp industry with questions about labor practices and sustainability. But with new technology, businesses like Trū Shrimp are improving land-based water recirculating systems to raise shrimp sustainably in tanks, without using antibiotics, and without the carbon footprint.
