Ethics in Aquaculture and Fisheries Management

With the growing dependence on aquaculture as a global supplier of seafood and aquaculture products for consumptive, recreational, or restoration purposes ethical conflicts between producers and the general public are inevitable. The increased visibility of aquaculture on global basis requires producers, suppliers, scientists, educators, and regulators to proactively and responsibly understand and appropriately respond to perceived ethical issues associated with the discipline.  Ethical challenges that aquaculture face revolve around environmental sustainability, animal welfare, responsible conduct in research, stock enhancement and restoration, genetic manipulation and management, plant and animal health and well-being, and social and regulatory concerns.
