Aquaculture

A rapidly growing sector of agriculture, aquaculture is expected to provide almost two-thirds of the fish intended for global consumption by 2030. Aquaculture involves the breeding, rearing, and harvesting of freshwater and marine species of fish, shellfish, and aquatic plants. Producers farm in all types of water environments, including ponds, rivers, lakes, oceans, and land-based, closed recirculating-water systems. Faced with a rapidly rising world population, scientists, farmers, and policymakers are seeking ways to meet future food demand. (Source NIFA)
