The knowledge about the real possibilities that current science gives us is basic to support everythingthat is not negative either for men or for our environment. In this way, it is an advantage to win this battleagainst hunger with rational use of science advantages. In this paper, we start from the basis that thesolution to the problems of hunger requires the multidisciplinary action of sciences and knowledge. Weprovide a reflection on the possibilities to be considered from disciplines such as ecology, biotechnology,veterinary and aquaculture. The need for ecological studies where the role of human beings as partof ecosystems is considered. In addition, advances in molecular biology and precision agriculture areanalyzed, evaluating their advantages and associated problems, as well as understanding the role ofveterinary science and animal genetic improvement in the problem of hunger. Finally, the bases thesustainable use of sea products and expectations generated by marine crops are presented.
