Inside the world's biggest fish farm

By 2050, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations predicts that the world's population will reach 9.1 billion people.
This is 34% more than it is today.
To eliminate mass hunger, food supplies must grow at a faster pace, and world food production must increase by 70%.
Current methods of fish farming will not be able to meet the global demand for fish safely and sustainably.
In this video, we will tell you how the new largest and most complex fish farm in the world works, and whether similar technologies are able to provide us with food in the future.
Wild fish stocks are declining at a rapid pace.
The World Wildlife Fund estimates that 53% of the fishing grounds are fully developed, and the global fleet of fishing vessels is two to three times higher than the sustainable state of the world's seas and oceans.
If we do not cut back fishing in the very near future, then all types of wild commercial fish could disappear by the middle of the century.

Did you know that aquaculture is the fastest-growing food production sector In the world?
This is as a result of seafood being one of those rare types of food that is very useful to humans and at the same time easily scalable in production.
With the help of innovative technologies, such as artificial intelligence and microscopic fungi, almost every country with access to the sea will be able to completely solve the issue of its own seafood shortage.
And today we will look at exactly how advanced technologies will help feed the entire planet.
People have been going to the sea for food since ancient times.
In the last century, fishing has become so widespread that hundreds of marine life species have become endangered.
Thus, according to The International Union for the Conservation of Nature, more than 90 species of fish, including sharks, rays, and other cartilaginous fish, are at risk in European waters alone.
As Nicholas Dulvy, a marine ecologist at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, Canada, points out "There's been no effective movement on fisheries management in the Mediterranean in the last decade". To make matters worse, different countries have various fishing laws and what is prohibited in one country may easily be allowed in another.
This results in fishing boats being able to catch even illegal fish species and simply sell them on another market.
