    Abstract: Population growth in the coming decades will put severe pressure on human food, animal feed, and fiber production from both land and ocean ecosystems.℗ Environmental sustainability and social justice are increasingly important elements in debates on how to ensure adequate food for a℗ growing global population.℗ Gathering approximately 90 peer-reviewed entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology, Sustainable Food Production provides comprehensive coverage of this vital area of current research.℗ Sections on animal breeding and genetics for food, crop science and technology, ocean farming and sustainable aquaculture science and technology, and transgenic livestock for food discuss state-of-the-art scientific advances, and place them in their proper scientific, environmental, ethical, socio-economic, and political contexts
