Related to the theme "Reshaping the food system to improve people's health" under paragraph 9 a stronger emphasis on aquaculture is warranted. I suggest to include the following:

Aquaculture has a huge potential to ensure safe and healthy food in order to improve people’s nutrition. There is a substantial amount of nutrients available that can be utilized sustainably as feed resources for aquaculture produce. Thus, a better utilisation of available nutrients resulting from our current food systems by utilizing aquaculture for food production will lead to an increased production yielding high quality protein and important micronutrients locally, regionally, nationally and globally.
