BSL Environmental Science Glossary - Aquaculture definition

Definition: Aquaculture can take place either in seawater or freshwater, like rivers or lakes. It is like farming underwater, with fish in floating netted enclosures. They are fed so they grow and breed, and then are sold on. It's not only fish that can be cultivated in this way, but also shrimp, seaweed, oysters, a variety of aquatic stock that is cultivated for sale.
