Agriculture ministry experts believe sustainable fish farming and algae farming could play a key role in global food crisis.

Aquaculture and genetic engineering could provide the basis for solving some of the world’s food insecurity problems in the coming decades.

By 2050, the world’s population is projected to reach her 9.8 billion people, further straining food supplies and calling for more sustainable agriculture.

Aquaculture – the process of breeding and growing fish and plants in water – can help.

“This is one of the best responses to this crisis,” Noam Mozes, head of the marine aquaculture division at Israel’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, told media his line.

“Common fish and aquaculture, including algae, do not require fresh water or arable land. It uses far less energy per kilogram of protein produced and emits far less CO2 to the environment. ”

Ahead of the first conference in Eilat, October 18-20, later this month, The Media Line spoke with experts in the animal genetics and aquaculture sector about the latest innovations and developments.

The International Summit on Food from the Seas and Deserts will be attended by officials and scientists from Israel and around the world.
