Statement of the Problem: Modern aquaculture in southern Côte d'Ivoire has experienced difficulties in recent decades. Like the rest of the region, the Hydrofish farm has suffered from a halt to its activities since the end of 2015. However, it enjoyed a seemingly rigorous management and benefited from a super-industrial production system with the collaboration of a world giant of the aquaponic culture, Hydronov in Quévec. The aim of this study is to identify the determinants of the crisis of modern aquaculture in southern Côte d 'Ivoire based on the case of Hydrofish. Methodology & Theoretical Orientation: The working method used is documentary research and a field survey marked by direct observations on the farm of Hydrofish before and after its closing and the administration of questionnaires to the actors. The sociosystem derived from the aquaculture geosystem of corlay (1993) served as a theoretical basis for this study. His analysis indicates that political, economic and social factors influence aquaculture activities. Findings: Dysfunction in the production system with the death of more than 06 tonnes of fish, inadequacies in the management of the farm due to theft of fish, sometimes estimated at more than 04 tonnes per day, and the selling price of fish that are considered too high by consumers, are the root causes of halting activities at Hydrofish. Conclusion & Significance: The stakes of this recession are many. These include the decline in local and regional fish production, the increase in population poverty and the risk of crises among small producers in the country, as Hydrofish also acted as a food and beverage supplier, Fry to the latter. Prospects for relaunching activities at Hydrofish are designed to revitalize the sector.
