    Question in the next decades? in the next decade?

    Global aquaculture outlook in the next decades: an analysis of national aquaculture production forecasts to 2030

    The above piece was quoted from Internet, I have often seen "in the next decades" in many articles.

    Can we say "in the next decades", "in the next years" , " in the next months"?.

    If we are talking about to the end of 2030, I would say "the next two decades". If there is no date in view, I would say "the next few decades/years/months."
