Sea-life would haggle with you on that point.
Thus, although what you say is patently false, it is not inconsiderably true in some certain major respects.
By the way, there are sea-vegetables that Humans can harvest, and of course a lot of sea animal-life, which can -- and does -- support Human populations very importantly.
I grew up along the N. American Atlantic coast, and fished for Striped Bass, Bluefish, Flounder, and Fluke, and grew tomatoes, string beans, and corn in a (fish-offal-fertilized) garden as a kid, in The Garden State.
I didn't start eating seaweed until I became interested in Japanese food in my late teens, though, and "Macrobiotic" eating, in college.
I don't even understand this sentence. Best to keep to simple syntax.
It's been millions of years since our predecessors have left the sea to live on the land. The Oceans are over-fished and polluted. I mostly eat locally harvested fish and avoid some fish like salmon altogether. It's not just that they are genetically modified but they are also loaded with growth hormones and other drugs. The fish farms further pollute the seas.
No, I'm afraid for food we are mostly dependent on land resources. Fertile soil is also important for biological diversity and the mitigation of climate change.
Yes, of course for most Humans, farming on land is what supports the majority of nutritional needs of Humans and land-based ruminant herd-animals.
Although what you wrote ignores the importance of protein and vegetables from the seas, nonetheless, your point about the large importance of continental soil is well taken.
Seas also mitigate climate change by absorbing about half the additional CO2 available in the atmosphere. But, acidification of seas militates against formation of limestone, which would otherwise efficiently passivate CO2 (remove it from the atmosphere to form "stone", from shells of sea animals).
ps EDIT -- of course, the way that farming the land will be made less vital is via the increasing reliance on hydroponic production of vegetable and fruit and legume and fungi foods for Humans. This is very efficient, and is done even in cities. When done in cities, the transport costs of bringing produce to market then is almost zero, since it has only to go to the nearest grocers in town who contract to buy the foods, only a few km away, who then sell to local consumers. Multi-story dedicated "farms" are probably the way to go, there, involving no tilled soil at all, but perhaps 20-storey or taller glass-walled buildings. Good to keep an eye toward these new developments, as well as upon our 10000 year old methods, which I think some say are becoming compromised, and unreliable due to climate changes, and of ever lower quality in their content of nutrients and flavor(s) due to soil depletions not augmented by traditional farmers by addition of minerals, via decomposed granite, or etc., nor by crop-rotation, and, instead, suffering a faithful insistence on monoculture. Well, live and learn, I hope. Somewhat optimistic! But, what a different face of food production may be coming to show itself more commonly! Maybe necessary, for Spaceship Earth... . I think so.
The study is not about protein. It is about soil degradation and the resulting environmental destruction, extinction of species and climate change.
The study is about sustainable land management to mitigate climate change, and the like. The emissions sequestered or emitted by sea surfaces is not substantially influenced by human usages of the oceans. In other words, fish farms don't plant forests or cover crops on the ocean surfaces that would be able to sequester additional green house gases.
Right, of course not. No one relies on "fish farms" having anything to do with fossil carbon (re-)sequestration. Shelled sea animals help with that. And they are mostly VERY tiny, mostly invisible to the naked eye. LOTS of them in a liter of water. But ocean acidification is not good news for them, nor us.

Allan Savory explains why grazing animals are important for preventing desertification, alleviating poverty and socials conflict and for reversing climate change:
Allan Savory: How to fight desertification and reverse climate change
I wholeheartedly recommend watching this movie called Cowspiracy for a different angle on this matter.
The movie actually mentions Allan Savory, and well, not in a very good light : ) (As responsible for the slaughter of 40 000 elephants in Africa.)
It's basically about how animal agriculture is the biggest environmental threat. It is not a vegan propaganda, by the way.
(Alternatively, you can watch it for free here with Hungarian subs .) and bad quality of course):

Well, I used to live in a village but ironically I have a corn allergy (http://stopallergyguide.com/corn-allergy/). It is a congenital disease and doesn't have any connections with me living on the farm. It appears most often children suffer from corn allergy, which is regarded to be a quite spread problem but one of the most complicated. The reasons can be due to eating corn grains or corn protein, which serve as allergens.
But I agree that farm is really good place to raise your children.
Soem of the results of these studies were debunked. The main point is that vegans need much less land to produce food we need (because the middle step, i.e., plants, is eliminated). Similarly, vegan life style requires much less energy. In effect, vegans put much less burden on the environment than if we reverted to a non-vegan life style.
The environmental effects of vegan life style are the least burdensome on the environment. Specifically, they cause less suffering and damage to life than any other life style.
By the way, I do not care whether or not it is a good karma. I care about suffering and harms my actions may cause. For me, it's an attempt of conducting myself in a kind and compassionate way. If there is some good karma in it. so be it.

In the past, certain actions were necessities.
In the present, the same actions are not necessities.
We certainly cannot avoid killing or causing harms.
But we can try to cause as little harm as possible.
How are you with the junk food?
When you eat you see that they just melt in your mouth and there remains nothing to swallow.They are all fabrications and all fabrications are tricky in this time.
It is very hard to find food that remain natural still.
Same with the macaroni (spaghetti).
It is hard to find real macaroni.
I look at it sometimes...
