Following on from NOAA and the US Department of Commerce’s announcement of a National Policy that will allow for fish farming in US waters, the US Food and Water Watch group have strongly opposed the policy, launching a campaign on what it brands as destructive.

“Industrial ocean fish farming is a filthy way to produce fish, and contrary to NOAA’s claims, it is not a sustainable means to supplement the US seafood supply, protect ocean resources, or promote a healthy economy in the US,” the Food and Water Watch Group announced. Food and Water Watch continued to criticise NOAA’s policy saying that its plans to expand fish farms would just increase pollution, as the majority of fish produced would be exported.
