Global ocean farming market is anticipated to observe an impressive growth during the forecast period, 2024-2028. Rapid climatic changes are expected to support the growth of global ocean farming market. Climate changes have created problems in growing several varieties of crops or plants, hence, alternative farming practices such as ocean farming are being widely adopted to produce both aquatic and non-aquatic crops and plants. The surface temperature on Earth was around 0.98 degree Celsius warmer than the 20th century average in 2020.

Ocean farming also known as marine farming or mariculture is a branch of aquaculture which involves the cultivation of mollusks, marine fishes, crustaceans, algae, aquatic plants, and other organisms. The increasing awareness about the ocean farming method and growing adoption of sustainable methods of farming are expected to drive the growth of global ocean farming market during the forecast period. Besides, growing investments in technological research and product innovation, lifestyle changes, increasing demand for nutritious food, surge in number of start-ups, and rising support from governments are some of the other factors which support the growth of global ocean farming market.

Increasing Inclination of People Towards Aquatic Foods

Growing inclination of people towards the consumption of sea food such as oysters, cockles, mussels, sawfish, seaweed, among others is bolstering the growth of the global ocean farming market. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations report, in 2019, the United States was the second largest consumer of seafood in the world. In 2019, Americans consumed 6.3 billion pounds of seafood. Aquatic Foods contains various essential elements such as amino acids, vitamins, omega-3 fatty acid, minerals, due to which people are preferring them over other foods. Adding sea foods into the diet helps to lower the risk of numerous health conditions such as coronary heart disease, eyesight, heart health, liver cancer, depression and others.

Rising Food Insecurity

Food security is becoming an important issue across the world. This is attributed to rising increasing world population, overfishing, among others. According to the United States Food and Agriculture Organization, the world population is anticipated to reach 9 billion by 2050, which is estimated to increase demand for food by 70%. This, in turn, will augment the demand for food. The growing population’s food demand is generating a lot of pressure on farmers to grow food, due to which various smart practices are opted such as ocean farming to address the food insecurity concerns.

Surging Adoption of Advanced Technologies

Various advancements in technologies and innovation such as drones, precision agriculture, satellites, big data, machine learning, among others are augmenting the growth of the global ocean farming market. These techniques aim on food production and environmental stewardship such as the free Ocean Reports mapping and planning tool, which evaluates “ocean neighborhoods”. In addition, these technologies help in minimizing potential environmental impacts, and provide complete information about habitats and species present in the ocean, industries in the area, and hazards to aquaculture (such as shipwrecks or undersea cables).

Recent Developments

  • Ocean Reef Group, an Italian ocean diving company has been experimenting since 2012 with cultivating orchids, strawberries, lettuce, and basil in pods on the ocean floor under the project called “The Nemo’s Garden Project”. Ocean farmers have discovered a way to grow land-based crops on the surface of the ocean floor. It is the first underwater cultivation place of terrestrial plants.
  • In 2019, the start-up Alora (formerly known as Agrisea) has developed a salt-tolerant growing aquaculture technology which is used to expand food production into salinated bodies of water. Alora raised a $1.4 million seed round, controlled by Mistletoe Singapore, and Toyota Ventures.
  • Since May 2019, Floating Farm are operational in Rotterdam which was created by Dutch farmers. It is a first floating farm in the world and produces fresh food in the city, in a sustainable, transparent way, along with animal welfare as a topmost priority.
