Aquaculture & Fisheries

The term aquaculture broadly refers to the cultivation of aquatic organisms in controlled aquatic environments for any commercial, recreational or public purpose. The breeding, rearing, and harvesting of plants and animals takes place in all types of water environments including ponds, rivers, lakes, the ocean and man-made “closed” systems on land.

Aquaculture serves many purposes, including:

  • Food production for human consumption;
  • Rebuilding of populations of threatened and endangered species;
  • Habitat restoration;
  • Wild stock enhancement;
  • Production of baitfish; and
  • Fish culture for zoos and aquariums.
