“Nearly half of all seafood consumed as food worldwide are raised through aquaculture rather than caught in the wild, says the new report from the US’ Food and Administration Organisation. Global wild harvest today stands at roughly 95 million tonnes, and cannot be sustained in the long term as some of the natural habitats for fish disappear or degenerate,” said director, Abt Consulting, Dr George Parackal.
“Present global aquaculture production is nearly 60 million tonnes, valued at $70 billion, and to meet increased demand for seafood, the world will need additional 40 million tonnes of Seafood from aquaculture by 2030,” added Dr Parackal, pointing to the immense investment opportunity in the sector.
“The Middle East and Africa region, with its abundant unpolluted coast line and natural habitat, are well positioned to capitalise on this trend,” he said.
“Abt Consulting, with its consortium of associates and consultants, has the depth of talent, practical experience, technical and management expertise to suit client’s requirements. We aim to provide personalised quality service in completing tasks to specification, within the agreed schedule and budget,” added Dr Parackal.
