Visible to the public Resource Use at the Seafood-Energy-Water Nexus

The United States seafood supply is deeply interconnected with global seafood production, and with the energy and water systems needed for production, processing, and transport. Demand for seafood is expected to grow; the U.S. government advises higher seafood consumption for nutritional reasons. But wild caught seafood supplies are threatened and harvests have declined, while further increasing aquaculture will require greater energy, water, and feed resource use.
