Experts say the world's oceans just can't keep up with the rising demand for fresh fish. And a new study predicts by mid century the oceans could be depleted of fish.

 

But there's another source for seafood people are turning to -- one that many say can keep up with the demand.

 

Much of today's catch comes from the ocean -- but soon, it may not.

 

A new study in the journal, Science, warns that oceans around the world are rapidly running out of fish. The culprit: over fishing.

 

As it is now, half of the fish consumed doesn't come from the ocean but from a fish farm.

 

Vern Mancini raises and sells a quarter-million trout a year -- fish that make it to grocery stores, restaurants and your dinner table. This booming business is called "aqua-culture." The price is right -- about half the cost of wild fish.

 

Chef Christine Guzzino likes the taste: "I come here, I pick out my fish, and I bring it back, it's alive, and it's as fresh as it gets."

 

Her customers enjoy the taste, as well. But is it good for you?

 

Most species are considered safe, but there are concerns about salmon. Some studies show farm raised salmon have more potentially cancer-causing chemicals than wild salmon.

 

Still, experts say the benefits of eating fish, farmed or not, outweigh the risks.

 

"I don't think it's worth not eating the fish. When you talk about a nutritious diet, fish/salmon is important ... ideally, wild, but if not, farmed is fine," an expert said.

 

That's good news for Vern Mancini because it helps his bottom line.

 

"Everytime you pick up an article on fish, you know, the article's telling you, 'eat more fish, eat more fish.' and, I think, it's starting to click," Vern said.

 

Fish farms are typically on land, but some companies are looking into large-scale, off-shore farms that would go hundreds of feet down into the sea.
