World scientists declare climate emergency

Shrimp aquaculture addresses to different degrees three of the six action points…

Energy – as a carbon sink. Large extensions of shrimp farms globally grow algae.

Nature – Large extensions of shrimp farms globally grow phytoplankton.

Food – as an alternate to red meat consumption.

Warning – fished coldwater shrimp study NOT farmed. Do not extrapolate.

UN and IPCC probably already have – and Greta?

Yes via acidification and for wild fished coldwater prawn (cwp) – mainly p. borealis.

Not to worry farmed shrimp. Tastes here have already been manipulated by pelleted feeds…

……vannamei are sweet…before they get adulterated by processing that is.
