“Turning Points in Modern Aquaculture” is a 15-minute program produced by the Aquaculture Service of the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department. This program provides a historical overview of aquaculture development, from its earliest known inception more than 2,000 years ago in China to present day. This program highlights aquaculture as the fastest-growing food-producing sector in the world.
