Aquaculture continues to be the fastest-growing food production sector with great potential to meet projected protein needs. The scientific and business communities are responding to the challenges and opportunities inherent in the growing aquaculture sector with research efforts generating novel technologies that mirror the diversity of the industry. In genetics and breeding, the pace of advancement and innovation has been increasing exponentially. The number of breeding programmes, diversity of species, target traits and efficiency and sophistication of techniques applied continues to expand and advance. However, the pace of scientific development has at times outdistanced our ability to analyze risks and benefits, develop appropriate culture and containment technologies, educate and communicate, and reach policy and regulatory consensus. Now, more than ever, efforts must be made for society to accurately analyze and understand risks, to capture opportunities to raise healthier aquatic organisms faster with less environmental impact, while improving economic stability and providing associated social benefits.
