Sea food can come from fisheries or aquaculture. For fisheries, 60-90% of the emissions come from the diesel consumption of the fishing boats1 2. For aquaculture, the majority of emissions come from either feed (marine net pen and floating cage systems) or temperature control and oxygen regulation (land-based operations)1.
