The three dimensions of aquaculture’s sustainability in Africa for food safety


Author(s): Mustapha ABA

Abstract: Following the exponential increase in Africa's population compared to past decades and the increased need for food production to meet this growing demand in the continent, studies on agricultural research for sustainable food production have been gradually strengthened in the face of climate change, water scarcity and increasing desertification. Aquaculture is a growing sector in Africa and has a major role to play in the role is of primary importance in ensuring food security, while reducing dependence on wild fish stocks that are often overexploited. However, this rapid growth poses challenges to the overall long-term sustainability of the agricultural sector and raises concerns in a number of respects. Sustainable aquaculture implies the integration of all three pillars or dimensions of sustainable development to ensure that this young African industry is economically and environmentally viable, but also that aquaculture farms operate in a socially responsible manner.
