Aquaculture refers to the breeding, rearing, and harvesting of plants and animals in all types of water environments including ponds, rivers, lakes, and the ocean. It is also known as fish or shellfish farming. It is probably the fastest growing food-producing sector that now accounts for nearly 50 percent of the world's food fish.
The different types of aquaculture are marine aqua culture and Freshwater aquaculture. Marine aquaculture refers to the culturing of species that live in the ocean. Freshwater aquaculture produces species that are native to rivers, lakes, and streams
High-impact journals are those considered to be highly influential in their respective fields. The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
