Recirculating Farms Coalition has just launched Better Fish Farming, a new website about recirculating farms that will help you understand what recirculating farms are, how they work and why they're so great for fish, plants, people and the environment.
Dave Love, Laura Genello and Jillian Fry answer our questions about the Food Systems Lab at Johns Hopkins University's Center for a Livable Future and the ins and outs of their experiences with aquaponics.
Is it possible for a delicacy like caviar to be sustainable? As always, it depends on your definition, but some companies are giving it a try. Let's just say it involves a calm sturgeon and a delicate touch.
This week we're exploring aquaculture - also known as fish farming - through the lens of sustainability. While we may expect the fish on our plate to come from fisher folk out on their boats reeling them in, the reality is that much of our seafood comes from fish farms. In this post we look at fish farming in coastal and offshore waters.

Imported or domestic? Wild or farmed? When did choosing fish become so difficult? We've pulled together advice on navigating some common fish options you'll likely come across at the market or fish shack. Summer goes by fast, so cut back on the pondering and get back into the sunshine with our fish cheat sheet!
Mollusks might be nervous: ocean acidification looms. As with rising mercury concentrations in fish, our fossil fueled energy choices are largely to blame. (OK, so maybe mollusks don't have feelings - but we bet you do, oyster-lovers.) What a great reason to support renewable energy!
It sounds strange, but saltwater fish and freshwater resources are linked. A new study calculated just how much freshwater would be needed to replace fish and other marine protein in our diets with protein produced on land.
Marianne Cufone, Executive Director of the Recirculating Farms Coalition, talks about hurricanes, tilapia and how recirculating aquaculture systems can be produce seafood sustainably.
