Aquaculture subsidies - is an economic policy which involves the governemnt subsidising the cultivation of freshwater and saltwater populations (fish, crustaceans, mollusks, aquatic plants, algae, and other organisms) under controlled conditions.
This policy would of course would please capitalists and farmers, grow farmer membership and income with decreasing food price. Furthermore, the interesting thing is at medium to high levels, it would reduce the water shortage as water is already present and it’s livestock require less food to raise them.
However, this system is at the mercy of the environment. Its perks would gradually dip and become less fruitful if the environmental quality is low.
On lower funding there would be habitat degradation and waste which harms the environment but would later start improving the environment the farther we distance our farms away from land.Making the theresholds something like this:
Land-based farms > Both land-based and freshwater farms > Costal farms > Deep sea farms
The realm of fisheries and aquaculture is frequently uncharted in Democracy 4. Personally, I think the addition of aquaculture gives more depth and options for combatting the food shortage, water shoratge and nurturing the environment in a dynamic way. If we have vertical farms lets us have aquaculture as well. Please do consider it.
For those who are skeptical or confused do watch this video. This video gave me the idea to make this post. References are in it’s description and while your at it subscribe to the guy, he deserves it. Thanks Cliff, we all appreciate what you do!
