China is the world's largest producer and consumer of fish, contributing about one third of the global supply. Its production has tripled in the last 20 years, with about 75 percent coming from fish farms, according to the study published this week in the journal Science. If the industry used more waste from caught fish, along with plant proteins like algae or ethanol yeast to feed farmed fish, then aquaculture could become more sustainable, the study said.
