Diplomacy in Action


Aquaculture (the production of aquatic animals under controlled conditions) is the fastest growing form of food production in the world, and is a significant source of protein for people in many countries including the United States. More than half the fish and shellfish consumed by humans is produced by various types of aquaculture. This worldwide trend toward aquaculture production is expected to continue, and the Department of State is an active participant in efforts to make it sustainable. The main intergovernmental forum for these efforts is the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
