Abstract

Food producers from around the world are under increasing pressure to provide for a growing population that is demanding more protein (Charles et al., 2010). At the same time, they face significant supply-side constraints as the ecosystem goods and services required to produce food are pushed past carrying capacity (Nellemann, 2009).

As producers of high quality, nutritious protein, aquaculture is in a prime position to help bridge the gap between future supply and demand. However, if the industry is to capitalize on this opportunity, producers will need to look for innovative ways to measure and manage their operations in order to concurrently meet the demands being placed upon them by consumers and the limits of the natural environment (Costa-Pierce, 2002).
