Aquaculture (the controlled cultivation of aquatic animals in all types of water environments) is the fastest growing animal food production sector in the world. Current research shows that fish and other aquatic organisms have consciousness and the capacity to feel pain. Aquaculture significantly negatively impacts animal welfare and necessitates important legal, ethical and policy examinations of this industry. What legal and regulatory frameworks protect non-human animals raised in these unnatural conditions? Other deleterious consequences of aquaculture are to the environment, food safety and consumer health. How can law, policy advocacy, and public education be creatively utilized to enhance protections for aquatic animals, the environment and public health? How can this be balanced with food security concerns to best harmonize human, non-human and environmental interests? How can plant based fish and seafood be part of the solution?
