Aquaculture

Aquaculture or ‘aquafarming’ is the production of fish and other aquatic based food sources for human consumption as a renewable food source.

Aquaculture covers the cultivation of freshwater and saltwater food sources as opposed to fishing which is the harvesting of naturally occurring aquatic based food sources.
