Promoting a Blue Revolution
November 17, 2016 - Campbell River, B.C.
A new exhibit at California’s Aquarium of the Pacific titled “Vanishing Animals” provides a good reminder to visitors about our history that has seen many a land animal go extinct.
It also reminds us that we still have the opportunity to avert a similar path in the ocean. The conservation section of the exhibit speaks to how we can learn from endangered species that were brought back from the brink - and how responsible aquaculture can also play an important conservation role.
The Aquarium recognizes that marine aquaculture will play an increasingly important role in meeting the growing demand for seafood, stating that with the best available science and technologies, “seafood can be produced with fewer impacts relative to other animal proteins.”
The Aquarium’s Seafood for the Future initiative recognizes Marine Harvest Canada as a Producer Partner for its commitment to farming responsibly. Learn more about Seafood for the Future at www.aquariumofpacific.org/seafoodfuture/marine_aquaculture.
