The Case for Aquaculture

It’s the smart, sustainable, and equitable solution for meeting food supply needs in Washington and around the world.


Half of the world’s fish and seafood consumed comes from aquaculture. And a growing population means that we’ll need more food to provide for future generations.

Health and Accessibility

Salmon is an excellent source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Farming salmon also requires less freshwater than beef or rice – It’s healthy in more ways than one.

Economic Impact

The cost of farmed salmon is among the lowest of all natural protein available to consumers. And farming in Washington allows us to reduce the carbon impact of importing.
