Millions of people are moving from rural areas to coastal cities. Meeting the basic human needs for food proteins in the future will be a difficult challenge. Fishery products are the world's most important source of animal protein, which has led to a doubling of the demand for fish since the 1950s. As we cannot expect to catch more fish from the sea, we must turn to farming the waters, not just fishing them. The new challenge for planners now is to accelerate aquaculture development and to plan for new production, making urban areas of production, particularly using recycled urban wastewater.
Urban Aquaculture includes papers from authors in the USA, Europe and Asia that review these developing issues from the perspective of both developed and developing nations.
