Over 90% of fish and seafood consumed in the U.S. is imported from overseas, and over half the imports are farmed. Why isn’t America growing more of its own fish and seafood? The Working Waterfront looks at four U.S. farms growing catfish, salmon, oysters and mussels, their commitment to environmental responsibility, and the economic benefits of their businesses to local communities. The farmers also discuss the various challenges to growing a robust aquaculture industry in the U.S.
