Underwater farms vs. climate change?

For billions of people, seafood provides a significant source of protein and nutrition, but over half the seafood we eat isn’t caught in the wild, it’s grown through aquaculture. Farmed seafood is one of the fastest-growing food industries, but the farming methods echo the problems we’ve seen in industrial agriculture.

Underwater farms can disrupt or destroy local ecosystems in a varity of ways, but there are some key changes we can make to sustainably farm the ocean.
