Field Notes, powered by KPMG, is a weekly news update on news nationally and globally from the agri-food sector.
The fastest-growing animal production sector is Aquaculture, which has had global annual growth rates of 6 percent over the last 15 years. Consumption of aquatic food has risen to an average of 20 kilograms per person annually. Investors, landowners and farmers are increasingly interested in the potential for aquaculture production to diversify land and water use within New Zealand. Pāmu commissioned AgResearch and Plant & Food Research to consider how aquaculture production could be adapted into the land and water resources of a Canterbury dairy farm. It has been reported that low nutrient footprint production is to use aquaculture outputs in the wider farming ecosystem. This method requires sufficient storage capacity for the effluent water.
