Study: In Seafood Sales, Looks Matter More Than Sustainability « Aquaculture Directory

Study: In Seafood Sales, Looks Matter More Than Sustainability « Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
Alaska’s seafood marketers have spent millions over the past few years to promote the idea that Alaska seafood is sustainable: that it isn’t overharvested and that fishing for salmon doesn’t harm the environment. 

A new study published last month in the journal Ocean and Coastal Management found that message may not matter — or at least, it may not matter as much as simpler things like the smell, look and taste of the seafood in the grocery store.

AquaNor: Innovation Award finalists: Planktonic « Aquaculture Directory

AquaNor: Innovation Award finalists: Planktonic « Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
Planktonic supplies technology that we know mainly from science fiction: They cryopreserve living animal plankton and let the fish farmers revive the plankton when the fish is to be fed. For the researchers behind the technology, this work has been long and complicated – but for the fish farmer it is quick and simple to use.  

Just how Planktonic manages to capture large amounts of living animal plankton, cryopreserve the plankton, store, transport and then revive it, is a well-guarded secret. But it is beyond doubt that they have succeeded, and on an industrial scale.
