Check out this interesting concept for floating farms:

A solar-powered floating farm to grow food and raise fish near some of the world’s biggest cities.

"Facing the current challenges of cities growing, land consumption and climate change, I believe projects like the Smart Floating Farms can help change some of the existing paradigms which have led us to the present situation and open new possibilities which can improve the quality of human life and the environment. Based on a Floating Platform Multi-layered strategy which combines Aquaculture(fish), Hydroponics-Aeroponics (crops) and Photovoltaics(solar power & other renewable energies), we aim that these floating farms can be located close to areas where food is more needed and potentially become automated Farm Clusters run by the use of IT technologies/software."

Even with all that water I think in a lot of locations water is still going to be an issue.
