National Geographic article considers whether fish farming can be sustainable

The National Geographic has published an article in its June 2014 edition which reports that farmed fish now supply 47% of the world’s consumption of fish, relative to 53% harvested from wild sources from the oceans. The article also reports on the environmental and ecological issues surrounding fish farming, and looks at fish farming models which might prove sustainable in the long term.
