A more profitable crop? Aquaculture and food security

This paper assesses how aquaculture can contribute to sustainable food security for the low income in the developing world. Food security, defined as the physical and economic access, by all people at all times, to the basic food they need, is achieved when three conditions are met: sustainable and predictable food supply; access by all either through access to the means of production and/or through purchasing power; and adequate quality including nutritional quality, to support life functions.
