The importance of farmed salmon for our future
The Global Salmon Initiative (GSI) is a leadership initiative by the global farmed salmon industry focused on making significant progress towards fully realising our goal of providing a highly sustainable source of healthy protein to feed a growing global population, while minimising our environmental footprint.
FAO predict growth in the world's population to 9 billion by 2050
Need for protein expected to grow by 70% worldwide
Farmed fish could provide a daily food supply for more than 500 million people by 2050
World population growth is outstripping
“The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation estimate that over 84% of the world's fisheries are either depleted, over- or fully exploited, which means that wild fish in oceans are too weak to meet the growing needs of an expanding, increasingly affluent global population”.
