A Japanese aquaculturist named Motosaku Fujinaga, devoted his life to figuring out how to farm shrimp. Beginning in the 1930s, Fujinaga worked for more than 30 years to develop effective methods for shrimp farming. Fujinaga was an idealist who believed that the world could feed everyone by farming the seas.

Aquaculture went from contributing 8 percent of the world’s seafood in 1975 to more than half by 2010. By 2012, Americans were eating twice as much shrimp per person as they had 30 years before, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
