Open Access Marine Fish Farming and the Blue Revolution: Culturing Cod Fisheries

Download Article:
(PDF 63.8 kb)
The Blue Revolution promises to transform wild marine fish into docile domesticates, fish hunters into harvesters. As commercially fished marine species continue to face extinction in the wild due to overfishing, pollution, global climate change and a host of other anthropogenic assaults, 'culture' has emerged as a keyword in the field of marine fisheries management. Like the terrestrial dreams and grandiose visions of their Green comrades a half-century earlier, Blue revolutionaries advocate the application of scientific expertise, industrial technology and trans-national capital in their oceanic culturing projects. These culturing projects influence and seek to transform human identity and ways of living as much as the genetic make-up, behaviours and metabolism of the wild fish species that are targeted for domestication.
