Untapped potential for sustainability: innovation in the Asian aquaculture industry – a WorldFish perspective

  1. 1. source: FAO Untapped potential for sustainability: Malcolm Beveridge, Michael Phillips, Wayne Rogers and Steve innovation in the Asian aquaculture Hall industry – a WorldFish perspective
  2. 2. overview•  WorldFish, sustainability and innovation•  global analysis of environmental sustain-ability of aquaculture•  the role of innovation in improving sustainability –  technological – breeds and feeds –  business – social and economic
  3. 3. where WorldFish is coming from •  reduce poverty and hunger by improving fisheries & aquaculture •  develop and promote aquaculture value chains that –  produce food that meets poor consumer needs –  help reduce vulnerability of poor producers and others involved in aquaculture value chains –  achieves this without harming the environment and those who depend on it
  4. 4. aquaculture andtheenvironment
  5. 5. global aquaculture productiondata from FAO SOFIA (2012)
  6. 6. BLUE FRONTIERS - background •  analyse global aquaculture production across major species/ production systems –  75 species/system combinations –  accounted for 82% production •  compare biophysical resource demands of each system and their cumulative impacts •  compare the results with those from other animal food production systems •  examine consequences of likely future trends
  7. 7. BLUE FRONTIERS – impacts, system
  8. 8. BLUE FRONTIERS – impacts, species
  9. 9. BLUE FRONTIERS – impacts, location•  tremendous scope to improve environmental performance by learning from the best in Asia 3-fold difference
  10. 10. improvingenvironmentalperformance- farming better fish
  11. 11. what’s a better fish? •  meets the needs of farmers: faster growing, better survival, food conversion (costs); more resistant to diseases; more docile (handling; grading) A b b a s s a s tra in C o m m e rc ia l s tra in photo: Nabil Ahmed Ibrahim and Mohamed Yehia Abou Zaid 112 g•  meets the needs of society: affordable; nutritious; safe, environmentally friendly

(2012), after Rye et al. (2010)
  13. 13. improved strains and food production•  <10% of global aquaculture production is of genetically improved strains 33% modified from Gjedrem (2012)
  14. 14. innovativefeedingtechnologies
  15. 15. feeds •  how to produce greater quantities of affordable, nutritious farmed fish without increasing demands for fishmeal and fish oil? •  increasing demands on oilseed meals and oils and pulses for human food —  better utilization of existing scarce feedstuffs —  breed better fish —  improved FCRs —  improved ability to elongate EFAs source:  h%p://www.clextral.com
