Press Release #4 – June 27, 2013: A Blue Revolution is Needed to Feed the World!

Paris, France, June 27–The 2013 BioMarine Business Convention, which will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia from 9-12 September, in collaboration with the National Research Council of Canada, will focus on Aquaculture and Aquafeed, among the three themes of the event. The other themes are marine biotechnologies and marine natural products.
Aquaculture is the world’s fastest growing source of food production. With the world’s population set to rise by 2.6 billion in the next 45 years, more food will be consumed in the next 50 years than in the whole of world history. Feeding the world will become our most important and pressing global priority. Meeting this challenge will require a Blue Revolution to produce food from the worlds’ waters.
