Fish Breeding and Biotechnology



On October 12, 1990 , at a hospital in Sarajevo, Bosnia, then United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan declared the birth of the six-billionth human being. It had taken 12 years for the world’s population to increase by one billion people from five to six billion, and 13 years before that to climb from four to five billion. As this shows, the rate of population increase had accelerated enough to shorten the time that it took for the population to grow by one billion people. Increases in population are inevitably accompanied by food production issues; methods that have been used to date to increase food production include expansions of farmland area, use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and cultivation of high-yield grain varieties.
