    Nothing about aquaculture is sustainable. It takes 10 pounds of fish to make 1 pound of farmed fish. Few fish can eat a vegetarian diet and they require other biomass of fish to eat. Farmed fish are far worse to the environment than wild caught fish. It's sad that in a place where fishing is such a large part of life that nobody realizes this.

    The author would also be better served by looking at the quality of Newfoundland products and what secondary processing is done to the fish/shellfish. Newfoundland has always had a low quality of fish due mostly to how the fishermen harvest the fish. Of course, nobody wants to own up to that problem as that would mean saying something politically unpopular.
