Consumers are increasingly interested in knowing the sustainability story behind the food they buy, particularly when it comes to marine conservation. 

The spotlight is shining brightly on the food we are eating and tracing it from the dinner table all the way back to the farm and/or fishery… and even further back to the eco-friendliness of the feed these marine animals and fish are consuming.

Seafood is widely recognised for its low environmental impact compared to alternative sources of animal protein. Yet, within the aquaculture sector, feed production - with its robust manufacturing processes and equipment - can be burdensome on the environment.

Aquafeed production is an influential link in the supply chain, and we have tremendous opportunities to lessen environmental impacts at the plant level. In this article, we will review 'green concepts' and more sustainable practices for the aquafeed facility including responsible facility design, certifications and traceability. 

Making production facilities more sustainable
In the late 1980s the Brundtland Commission released a report called Our Common Future, where it defined sustainability as, '… meeting our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.' This definition integrates environmental, social and economic development.
