Marine aquaculture is set to play a critical role in securing supplies of protein for a global population that will exceed nine billion by 2050. For the industry to grow substantially and sustainably, investors, governments and financiers need trusted information on which to base business cases, supportive policies, and financial and technological due diligence. 

This first Marine Aquaculture Forecast from DNV responds to that need by delivering our ‘best estimate’ of the future. 

Our analysis considers population growth and changes in living standards to estimate future demand for food and protein. It then forecasts the role of marine aquaculture in meeting this demand through the main species and technology options involved.
