This book chapter explains the development of organic aquaculture including the environmental problems conventional aquaculture caused during the so called "blue revolution".
Organic aquaculture is a very young segment of global aquaculture and startet as late as in the mid 1990s with the development of standards for production of organic salmon. The problems caused by intensive conventional aquaculture are explained in detail including use of fish meal, habitat destruction, eutrophication, antibiotics, introduction of new species and animal welfare. Basic rules of organic aquaculture are explained as are some typical production systems.
