Threat to Food Security - ?? - No water, try "seaweed aquaponics" - producing fish and "seaweeds" instead. You have salt water fish and abundant healthy seaweed. We can make use of our God given "islands" as we are surrounded by the sea. No need to go to the sea to fish, bring the seawater to the land, piping or hauling-trucking. More sea water inland, creates more fresh water by evaporation and reverse the El-Nino - "ill effects". Explore...

You can use salt-water-fish and seaweed instead. But the aquaponic principle is the same as in fresh water-using fresh water plants and fresh water fish. In seaweed aquaponics you use salt water fish, and seaweed( which obviously is a salt water plant). I have not tried it yet but in some countries they have.
