Industrialized farming was once seen as a solution for a rapidly-growing global population, but it is taking its toll on the environment.
The UN estimates that the world could easily be fed if just 2% of oceans were used for sustainable farming.
Underwater agriculture has the potential to eliminate the need for pesticides, reduce water use and cut carbon emissions.
Could underwater strawberries and deep-sea herbs provide a more sustainable alternative to land-based farming?
Industrial agriculture is struggling to meet the needs of a rapidly growing population. And decades of intensive farming has taken a heavy toll on the environment.
An over-reliance on pesticides, displacement of wildlife, the wasting of gallons of water and the generation of harmful emissions are damaging our world.
So, scientists and entrepreneurs are hoping underwater farming could address these issues by growing crops under the ocean, eliminating the need for pesticides, while also reducing water use and carbon emissions.
Indeed, the UN estimates the world could easily be fed if we used just 2% of the oceans for sustainable farming.
