What is aquaculture?

Aquaculture has been defined by the FAO as the farming of aquatic organisms including finfish, shellfish (mollusks and crustaceans) and aquatic plants. Farming implies some form of intervention in the rearing process to enhance production, such as regular restocking, feeding and protection from predators. Farming also implies individual or corporate ownership of cultivated stock.
