Many people choose to eat fish only, as there is a general perception that fish farming is a more sustainable option. However, we often forget that, as it stands at least, aquatic farming is riddled with the same issues as meat and dairy farming.
With the work of innovative fish farmers and researchers, however, that all may be about to change. Check out this gallery to learn how underwater farming may help to combat climate change.
