Farmed Salmon - A sustainable solution
As the world’s growing demand for protein continues to rise, salmon are becoming less prevalent in the wild for a variety of reasons. Eco-certified aquaculture companies, like the New Zealand King Salmon Co. are a sustainable solution to this growing demand, as we can reproduce what we harvest. “The global population is increasing, and in order to maintain at least the current level of per-capita consumption of aquatic foods, the world will require an additional 23 million tonnes thereof by 2020” FAO, 2012.
