The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) announced a big change in 2022. Farming fish, shrimp, and clams now produces more than fishing in the wild. In 2022, over 185 million tons of aquatic animals were caught. This shows that wild fishing has not grown much for 30 years. Experts say people now know more about the benefits of aquaculture. It is better for the environment than farming land animals. Manuel Barange, who works at FAO’s fish and farming group, talked about this. While catching wild animals went down a bit, aquaculture went up. Asia makes up most of the world’s fish farms. Almost all farmed animals are for eating. Some are used for other things like animal food or oils. Carp, oysters, clams, shrimp, tilapia, and prawns are farmed a lot. Anchovies, tuna, and pollock are common in the wild. This change shows how fish and farming are changing.
