Promoting sustainable aquaculture practices to minimize the ecological footprint

Light Pollution

Promoting sustainable aquaculture practices is essential for meeting the increasing global demand for seafood while minimizing the ecological footprint on marine and freshwater ecosystems. Sustainable aquaculture balances economic, environmental, and social considerations to ensure long-term viability. Here are 500 words highlighting the importance and benefits of sustainable aquaculture practices:
