A major change began 10,000–12,000 years ago when humans began to practice agriculture. A series of “green revolutions” enabled the human population to explode, but these advancements have dramatically changed the planet. The United Nations predicts that we will need to produce 50% more food by 2050 to feed another 2.5 billion people, but this will be challenging with tighter land and water resources and a changing climate. Responsible marine aquaculture can complement responsible land‐based… 
Global change in marine aquaculture production potential under climate change
TLDR
This study model and map the effect of warming ocean conditions on marine aquaculture production potential over the next century, based on thermal tolerance and growth data of 180 cultured finfish and bivalve species, finding heterogeneous patterns of gains and losses, but an overall greater probability of declines worldwide.
Nudging fisheries and aquaculture research towards food systems
Food system is a powerful concept for understanding and responding to nutrition and sustainability challenges. Food systems integrate social, economic, environmental and health aspects of food
Functional Trait Responses of Macrobenthos to Anthropogenic Pressure in Three Temperate Intertidal Communities
With the increasing impact of human activities on marine ecosystems, there is a growing need to assess how the components of marine ecosystems (e.g., macrobenthos) respond to these anthropogenic
Dietary nutrients and health risks from exposure to some heavy metals through the consumption of the farmed common carp (CYPRINUS CARPIO)
TLDR
The concentration of essential minerals in the muscle tissue of carp obtained from a pond culture was determined and to compare the content of these minerals with the physiological norms of nutrition for the Polish population, Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA), and Estimated Average Requirements (EAR).
Food for all: designing sustainable and secure future seafood systems
TLDR
This paper uses an evidence-based narrative approach to examine how the anticipated global trends for seafood might be experienced by people in different social, geographical and economic situations over the next ten years.

TLDR
This study simulates how different forms of aquaculture contribute and compare with feed and land use of terrestrial meat production and how spatial patterns might change by midcentury if diets move toward more cultured seafood and less meat.

Biodiversity loss and its impact on humanity
TLDR
It is argued that human actions are dismantling the Earth’s ecosystems, eliminating genes, species and biological traits at an alarming rate, and the question of how such loss of biological diversity will alter the functioning of ecosystems and their ability to provide society with the goods and services needed to prosper is asked.
Opinion: Offshore aquaculture in the United States: Untapped potential in need of smart policy
TLDR
Despite huge potential benefits in terms of a reduced trade deficit, local job and revenue creation, and a domestic source of safe and sustainable seafood, marine aquaculture production in the United States lags far behind many other countries worldwide.
