Fish for Kids is another example of how feeding schoolchildren locally-sourced foods benefits the kids and the community.
Aimed at kids 9-12, World Without Fish combines a graphic novel, lovely watercolor illustrations, and clear explanations to show what’s happening to the oceans and what kids can do about it.
84 percent of seafood consumed in the United States is imported and about half of that is sourced from aquaculture. Only five percent of the seafood consumed in the United States comes from domestic aquaculture. In an effort to reduce reliance on imports, NOAA has drafted an aquaculture policy document which is open for public comment.
The Global Aquaculture Performance Index (GAPI) measures the environmental costs and benefits of farmed fish. Using GAPI can help inform seafood purchases on a personal level as well as policy decisions on a national level.
Sea vegetables offer nutrients from the sea that are more sustainable than our fisheries.
