Scope and Importance:

About 567 aquatic species are currently farmed all over the world, representing a wealth of genetic diversity both within and among species. Aquaculture is practiced by both some of the poorest farmers in developing countries and by multinational companies. Eating fish is part of the cultural tradition of many people and in terms of health benefits, it has an excellent nutritional profile. It is a good source of protein, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and essential micronutrients Aquatic plants such as seaweed are also an important resource for aquaculture as they provide nutrition, livelihood and other important industrial uses.

Eighty per cent of current aquaculture production is derived from animals low in the food chain such as herbivorous, omnivorous fish and molluscs. Based on its dynamic performance over the last 30 years, and with fairly stable catches from capture fisheries, it is likely that the future growth of the fisheries sector will come mainly from aquaculture.
