There are two sides to everything – two sides of a coin, two versions of a story, the good and the bad, the yin and the yang, so what’s the deal with tech? There is a running assumption that technology was developed for the good of humanity, but now that we have it, we have seen the double edge-sword of power.
On one hand, we have the fastest access to information right at our fingertips, connecting people from all areas of the world. On the other hand, we have experienced how addictive devices and apps are, comparisons, and the withdrawal from society.
But let’s look at this from the viewpoint of aquaculture. Technology has improved the state of farms by providing important data, statistics, accessibility to information, the ability to improve animal welfare and so on.
Since farmed fish has taken a bigger slice of our seafood choices, also because of the decrease in wild fish populations, integrated technology-based solutions bring the potential for reliable sources of information that promote eco-intensification and efficient fish farming. So, tech is not so bad, if used properly.
