Frogs, the Present of the Future Protein Source

Frog farming, or raniculture, encompasses activities related to frog production, including maintenance, reproduction and breeding, as well as being part of the aquaculture industry. The objectives of raniculture can be commercial, such as human feeding (frog legs), animal feeding, or non-commercial such as repopulation with threatened species. Jose Barrio and Fabián Simón at Grenoucerie investigate why an interdisciplinary approach is needed in frog farming to replace wild-caughts that damage natural populations, whilst developing captive breeding programmes to ensure species survival.
