A New Aquatic Food Scoping Report

Aquatic food has a vital role to play in creating a global food system that supports a healthy human population on a healthy planet, yet it has been largely neglected in global efforts to chart the future of food.

The EAT-Lancet Commission report on healthy diets from sustainable food systems set scientific targets for healthy diets and environmentally sustainable global food systems. To accurately expand the EAT-Lancet report into a blue food context, several knowledge gaps must be filled.

This scoping report constitutes a first step in outlining a holistic look at how aquatic food can contribute to healthy and sustainable diets. Commissioned by EAT and authored by three EAT-Lancet authors from the Stockholm Resilience Centre, the report aims to elaborate on the role of blue food in the future food system, including how the food system model applied by the EAT-Lancet Commission dealt with aquatic food.
