Increased population led to an increased demand for seafood, ultimately innovating the seafood industry and rise of aquaculture. This technique allows fish, such as salmon, to be farm-raised in controlled conditions in attempts to provide sustainable fish for consumers while allowing wild fish to repopulate. Aquaculture nevertheless initiated environmental and human health concerns, sparking a debate over whether farmed salmon is a healthier alternative than wild salmon. This article discusses such concerns and suggests tools to address them like increased federal agency regulation, congressional intervention, and genetically engineered salmon.
