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
