This article suggests that sea freight is on the up and is increasingly able to take produce traditionally imported by air. It also highlights some of the efficiency measures being taken by the sea freight industry. However it also says that sea freight needs new infrastructure developments (eg. Port expansion). Note that these "second order" impacts and their implications for CO2 emissions tend not to be considered in traditional life cycle analysis or in food miles discussions.
