Aquaculture has been the world’s fastest growing food production technology in the past three decades, and has during this period profoundly changed the seafood market. There are a number of drivers in this process on the production as well as the market side. Understanding these drivers is important to understand why aquaculture production is set to continue to grow and further transform the seafood market. As aquaculture is a new way of using the environment, the growth in aquaculture production has also raised a number of environmental challenges. These challenges can all be addressed, but it largely depends on the governance system whether they are. Some countries, like the USA, is so risk averse that they do not allow a domestic industry to grow, but rather import from other countries.
