Big aquaculture bulldozes Borneo

Navigating his boat deftly through the mangrove forest, Matakin Bondien, a village chief in the Malaysian state of Sabah on the island of Borneo, points out the various sources of waste water pouring out into a stream. Not long ago, the clearing had been home to mangroves: saltwater-loving trees that anchor a web of life stretching from fish larvae hatching in the cradle of their underwater roots to the hornbills squawking at their crown.

Now their benevolent presence is gone, and their loss pierced Bondien, a village leader of the Tombonuo people, to the core. With climate change posing multiple threats to oceans already emptied by decades of over-fishing, the aquaculture industry argues that farmed seafood will be an important part of the solution for meeting the world’s growing demand for food.
