Re: NFC: Fw: Aquaculture

I think the answer would have to be yes.  From a U.S. perspective, aquaculture - as most consumers see it/know it - revolves around salmon, catfish, and tilapia.  But in Asia, milkfish, tiger prawn, oysters, and a host of others are raised commercially.  Can it help reduce the pressure on wild stock?  Yes.  Does it have risks?  Yes.  But if managed correctly, this has GREAT potential, as I see it.
