Norwegian firm builds Florida farm for cold-water fish (USA Today)

Apr 11, 2018

USA Today published an article quoting IFPRI's Senior Researcher, Siwa Msangi, on the favorable prospects of farming cold-water fish in Florida. She stated that while people tend to express skepticism for commercially farmed fish, changes in oceanic temperatures have caused an increase in algal blooms, which add toxins to the ocean and wild fish. Of the commercial farm in Florida, Msangi, who is also the co-author of a 2013 World Bank study on global fish production, stated, "this sounds like a great idea."
