The climate friendly protein

The year 2018 may retrospectively be seen as the year that climate change and environmentalism went from being something of a niche interest to become the centre stage focus of the mainstream. Aquaculture, and specifically salmon farming, naturally has a good story to tell but won’t rest on its laurels. Last October, when the United
