-----Original Message-----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.
