The following are some of the issues surrounding aquaculture.
Bold terms are topics for those working alone. Those working in pairs should deal with all of the topics.

There are resources available to help you choose which seafood to eat. Demo at least two of these for extra credit (iPod/iPhone apps, wallet-sized flyers...)

- what is aquaculture?
Aquaculture is basically farming, but for fish, or marine animals. In this day and age, food is becoming increasingly more scarce, so some people 'farm' aquatic life, in order to fed the more people on the surface of this earth.
- where is aquaculture done?
- what kind of fish are "farmed"?
There are many different type of fish that are farmed. A lot of fish are farmed, along with crustaceans, mollusks, echinoderms, and algae.
- are farmed fish more "environmentally friendly" than wild-caught?
No, they are not more environmentally friendly. They are not more friendly because they are taken from the wild, then they are sent back, and they do not know what to do most of the time, because they live in a closed environment, and thus, are not prepared like natural fish are.

Environment
The farms destroy land that could be used for other things, such as regular farms, but, they provide us food that we need, as a growing population.

Ethics
I think this is good


Environment, Ethics, Economics= E cubed.
