We no longer need the ocean to raise and harvest seafood. It’s a critical shift for the industry based on necessity: there simply are not enough aquatic creatures available for human consumption in our sea waters today.
Thanks to the developing enterprise of aquaculture – also known as farming in water – fish and other delicacies are being produced without setting up operations along an ocean coast line. There’s a push from consumers for more domestically-raised seafood, so with enhanced food safety techniques, environmentally-sound practices and the latest technology, people will better know where their seafood comes from.

Does your local Walmart or grocery store utilize self-checkouts? Do you remember when they were first introduced? Was it a big deal?
For many the introduction of any new technology is a big deal. A friend of ESE commented that when he visited his parents in rural Wisconsin that the recent introduction of self-checkouts at their local Walmart was the talk of the town. Many were upset about it due to the lack of personal touch, the longer lines (as some people refused to use the self-checkout registers), and the worry that automation was taking jobs away from people who needed them.
January marks the start of a new year, so we thought we’d look ahead and provide “10 Thoughts for 2019” from our talented team here at ESE. We hope you find this perspective useful as you consider plans for the coming year and hope that you continue the conversation with us in the months ahead.
