  Aquaculture is a water based Farming system or business. It refers to the breeding, rearing, and harvesting of plants, animals, fish and shellfish farming, in aquatic environments including ponds, rivers, lakes, and the ocean. Or in other words, aquaculture is the fresh or salt water farming of any fish, shellfish or aquatic plants.

  Aquaculture is called the “Blue Revolution”. It is relatively new industry in western world as it’s only been in the last 30 - 40 years that is has become a major industry. Since 1970s, global aquaculture production has been growing rapidly at a rate of about 9% per year. Today, aquaculture produce at least 50% of the world seafood and will likely continue to grow its production into the for seeable future as the demand for fish protein increase and the ability of wild fish stocks to meet the demand continues to dwindle due to overfishing and insufficient regulation.
