Oceana chief scientist Michael Hirshfield dropped by Huffington Post Live yesterday to talk sustainability, food security and fish (Michael begins speaking at around the 11 minute mark).
Michael says that the oceans are an often overlooked resource that if managed correctly could become 20 to 40 percent more productive than they are today, and sigificantly contribute to the global food budget in 2050 when world population is expected to top out at 9 billion people. Michael also discusses the merits of aquaculture, a term that encompasses everything from tuna farming which is unlikely to aid food security or the fight against overfishing, to shellfish cultivation, which can benefit both seafood lovers and ecosystems alike.
