Locavorism Debunked

Study shows that locally raised fish still leave a big carbon footprint.

Buying locally farmed meat may not be an environmentally friendly action, and in some cases may leave a bigger carbon footprint than buying imported foods. New research from Dalhousie University, the Swedish Institute for Food and Biotechnology, and Oregon-based environmental research organization Ecotrust challenges the recent local food movement. The three-year global study focuses on the life cycle of salmon production, but scientists say that the findings are applicable to other major food commodities as well. Research shows that modes of catching, feeding, and keeping salmon, along with the methods required to transport fresh fish, were more damaging to the environment than those used with frozen fish.
