The U.S Departament of Agriculture (USDA)has announced more than $1.2m in available funding to support the developement of environmentally and economically sustainable aquaculture in the US.The aquaculture reseach become more and more popular in the US and the rest of the world .
The funding is available through the Aquaculture Research Program ,which focuses on projects that directlly adress major challenges to the US aquaculture industry .
Results of the projects supported by this program are intended to help improve the profitability of the US aquaculture industry ,reduce the US trade deficit ,increase domestic food security ,provide markets for US produced products ,increase domestic aquaculture business investment opportunities and provide more jobs for rural and coastal America .
Although US aquaculture production has shown grown in the past decade ,the US curerently still has an aproximately $12 bn trade deficit in seafood products and import more than 90 % of seafood consumed.

Nanotechnology has the potential to mitigate pathogens , also the nanotechnology is an innovation of our century and now is used in the aquaculture business for some time ,fighting the battle with the microbes ,lowering antibiotic use,while making the fish farming more sustainable and more safe and secure .
Rather than create new organisms ,the researchers made the changed with the existing organisms.Scientists who are involved in the food nanotechnology put together the molecules to create foods with a longer shelf life and even taste better .
The scientiest also research the nanomaterials for the virus they contain.The official governments ,investors and reserachers are looking forward of these studies.
