    Aquaculture

    Aquaculture is about the breeding, raising, and harvesting of fish, shellfish, and aquatic plants for environmentally responsible production of healthy food. In other words, it’s farming in water or ‘aquafarming.’ There are two main types of aquaculture.

    Marine aquaculture refers to farming species that live in the ocean and estuaries. Freshwater aquaculture refers to farming species that live in ponds, reservoirs, lakes, rivers, and other inland waterways. Aquaculturists and students of the field alike study the biological processes related to fish farming technologies – and to do so they borrow from disciplines including biology, animal sciences, biodiversity, and conservation.
