Description: Seafood is becoming popular again. Very popular, it would seem. But there are a number of potential problems with this development, one of them being the fact that a number of oceans and seas across the globe have been depleted of some of the most popular species. Stepping in to address some of these challenges is NOAA's Office of Sustainable Fisheries. With an emphasis on domestic aquaculture production, the Office is interested in developing this production method as a way "to reduce dependence on seafood imports, provide jobs for economically depressed coastal communities, and increase regional food supply and security." On their site, visitors can look over different policy documents (such as the National Aquaculture Act of 1980) and also browse through hundreds of resources regarding aquaculture. Visitors can also look over the proposed 10-Year Plan for Aquaculture and many a fact sheet.
