Skrevet av Trond Bjørndal and Amalie Tusvik

There is much concern about future food supply and demand on the basis of expected population growth as well as due to the large number of people still suffering from undernourishment. At the same time there are limits to the potential for expanded production from fisheries, aquaculture and agriculture. What is often overlooked in many studies is the economic impact of changes in supply and demand for example due to changes in food prices, household income and consumer preferences. This analysis takes an economic approach in analysing supply of and demand for food up to 2030, with a particular emphasis on fisheries and aquaculture.
