The Sustainable Open Ocean Farming Imperative for the Future
Open Ocean Aquaculture is itself a Nature Based Solution to drive us towards implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Ocean farming is the future, and Manna Fish Farms, Inc. is currently awaiting permits to operate transparent and sustainable finfish farms in Federal waters off the coasts of New York and Florida. Today in the United States 91% of our seafood is imported, and our U.S. trade deficit is over $ 14 Billion dollars. In the United States and around the world, ocean farming has potential to feed our rapidly expanding population with healthy, sustainably produced, delicious seafood. Fish Farming is currently the fastest growing protein production sector in the world, as detailed in a recent Report of the United Nations/FAO.
