Managing wastes in the domestication of the BFT: Theoretical and practical considerations

Beaz V.

The domestication of the BFT, amongst others, has been the target of criticism from environmental and other pressure groups with respect of the perceived impact of the industry on the environment. With its potential scope of growth, problems are likely to increase in the future unless a responsible attitude to its development is adopted. Hence, the way forward in the domestication of the BFT, is to work towards a sustainable production. This would benefit both regulatory bodies and the aquaculture industry, since they all have an interest in the preservation and enhancement of the marine environment. The aim of the present work is to frame some key considerations for the sustainability of the domestication of the BFT, by focusing on the importance of controlling and reducing wastes from marine cage fish farming. The hope is to illustrate that aquaculture, if properly implemented and managed, is the way forward.
