Fishing for the right solution to hunger...

Aquaculture could help feed rising world demand for protein
December 19, 2011 - Fish farming needs fewer resources than raising livestock and can be more environmentally sound than open-water fishing.
Quote:
According to a recent report by the World Fish Center, while natural fish stocks are being rapidly depleted aquaculture, or the farming of fish and other aquatic species, could play an important role in meeting rising global demand for marine and freshwater products. Aquaculture is one of the fastest-growing food production systems in the world – it grew more than 21-fold since 1970. Currently, half of the seafood we eat comes from aquaculture, and as the human population continues to rise, demand for marine and freshwater products is likely to continue to grow.

There are many positive aspects to aquaculture. When compared to global livestock production, aquaculture requires less land, water, and natural resources. Farming fish is a comparatively more efficient way of supplying protein primarily because fish are coldblooded and have low metabolic rates. This results in more units of energy of protein produced for each unit of energy it took to raise the fish. Aquaculture may also be the only means to markedly increase future seafood production, causing less detrimental impacts to marine ecosystems than fishing.

Furthermore, not only can aquaculture provide nutritious food, fishing and fish farming generate income and employment to millions of communities around the world. Trade in marine and freshwater products can help alleviate poverty and contribute to national economic growth in many developing countries. The World Fish Center states that while aquaculture has many positive characteristics, particularly in light of the current state of global fisheries and livestock, the degree of environmental impact depends greatly on a variety of factors, including the particular species being farmed and the production system being used. The wide range of impacts between different production methods indicates the need for improved regional learning networks, where new technologies and sustainable methodologies can be disseminated to other producers, particularly those in the developing world.

Aquaculture has a great potential to meet rising demand with limited impact to the environment, while also providing employment and economic opportunity to impoverished communities. These efforts, however, are stymied by poor oversight and inconsistent regulation. If aquaculture is to achieve its production potential with limited impact on the environment, the public and private sectors will need to develop a coordinated and consistent policy, and a robust regulatory and management framework.

Aquaculture is also incredibly polluting. What's happening with your average fish farm is about the same thing as putting a pig farm in the middle of park and shoveling the pig poop over the fence. Fish generate waste (ever had an aquarium?) and when you concentrate that many animals in one place, it's very dirty. People try to make it sound like traditional farming practices are sufficient, yet that's a patent lie. If we put all of farmland to work, using good agricultral practices, we would be growing far more food than this world needs. But we intentionally choke back supplies to keep prices artifically inflated. What sucks is this practice was initially intended to protect the small farmer and all it's done is destroy him by making "factory" farming the only way to afford to grow food that can be sold at a decent profit margin.

More hunger in Africa...

More Than One Million Mauritanians Face Hunger in 2012
January 01, 2012 - The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies says more than one million Mauritanians could face hunger in the New Year unless immediate action is taken.
Quote:
Mauritania is suffering from the combined effects of drought, poor harvests and rising food prices, making life extremely difficult for tens of thousands of people who cannot afford to buy what little food is available on the market. The International Red Cross Federation predicts the number of people likely to face food shortages could reach 1.2 million in January, the first month of the New Year. Red Cross spokeswoman Jessica Sallabank says immediate steps must be taken to prevent, what could become, a hunger crisis equal to that in the devastated Horn of Africa.

She says the Red Cross needs to raise more than $2 million to quickly get as much food as possible in place to head off the crisis threatening Mauritania. “The money raised is aimed to assist over 10,000 households, 10,000 families," said Sallabank. "And priority spending for these funds will be again fodder for livestock, to provide seeds and tools for farmers, people living in rural communities, to provide food relief to people who do not have enough food, and also help to maintain and support the nutrition centers that exist already in the country.” The Red Cross Federation says it is concerned in particular about malnutrition rates for children under two years of age. It notes the southern Mauritanian regions of Brakna and Gorgol have the highest acute malnutrition rates in the country. Sallabank says a priority for the Mauritanian Red Crescent is to provide badly malnourished children with life-saving supplementary nutrition, such as rice and cereals.

She says in an effort to prevent recurring food crises, the Red Cross plans to implement activities to help make people less dependent on rainwater for their food security. “These programs for example include investing in different irrigation systems for crops. So, for example, training or introducing drip-feed systems into rural communities, which enable crops to be watered more consistently and for a longer period of time, even in times of drought," she said. "Also, another way in which we could really help people better withstand the shock of drought is by digging deep water wells. The Mauritanian Red Crescent staff and the volunteers are out in the communities and they are digging much deeper water wells in villages, which obviously their families can still access water in times of severe drought.” Red Cross officials say a new tragedy could be avoided in Mauritania if the international community responds to the needs immediately, and action is taken now.

Progress against hunger has slowed in the last five years...

UN Pushes 'Smart Crops' as Rice Alternative to Tackle Hunger in Asia
March 14, 2017 — Asia needs to make extra efforts to defeat hunger after progress has slowed in the last five years, including promoting so-called "smart crops" as an alternative to rice, the head of the U.N. food agency in the region said.
Quote:
Kundhavi Kadiresan, representative of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Asia, said the region needs to focus on reaching the most marginalized people, such as the very poor or those living in mountainous areas. The Asia-Pacific region halved the number of hungry people from 1990 to 2015 but the rate of progress slowed in many countries - such as Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India and Cambodia - in the last five years, according to a December FAO report. "The last mile is always difficult.. so extra efforts, extra resources and more targeted interventions are needed," she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation on the sidelines of a business forum on food security in Jakarta on Tuesday.

She said government and businesses needed to develop policies to help make food more affordable, while changing Asians' diets that rely heavily on rice. "We have focused so much on rice that we haven't really looked at some of those crops like millets, sorghum and beans," she said. A campaign is underway to promote these alternatives as "smart crops" to make them more attractive, Kadiresan said. "We are calling them smart crops to get people not to think about them as poor people's food but smart people's food," she said, adding that they are not only nutritious but also more adaptable to climate change.

Soaring rice prices, slowing economic expansion and poorer growth in agricultural productivity have been blamed for the slowdown in efforts to tackle hunger. More than 60 percent of the world's hungry are in Asia-Pacific, while nearly one out of three children in the region suffers from stunting, according to the FAO. Achieving zero hunger by 2030 is one of the U.N.'s Sustainable Development Goals adopted by member states in 2015.

As a farmer, We are being told we have expanded global farm output faster than the population of the world is expanding. Hence we have a surplus, and low prices on the farm.

This situation will not end any time soon either.

When we had better prices everyone hated that we were making good money. But more farmland was cleared, and world production went way up. Now the party is over.

This has been going on for 50 years. They can't teach most of these folks to do anything them selves. All they know how to do is procreate.
