Aquaculture, or fish farming, represents controlled procedures of breeding, rearing, cultivating, and harvesting fish, algae, shellfish, and other aquatic organisms. They are mostly performed in freshwater ponds, rivers, coastal ocean waters, and on-land tanks. Aquaculture practices aid in food production, aquarium building, and restoration of habitats and threatened and endangered species populations. They even minimize waste creation by producing feed for shellfish and fish, offering a natural and safe breeding environment to the aquatic population, and ensuring optimum usage of agricultural and natural resources. Consequently, aquaculture procedures are extensively practiced across countries.

Market Trends

The shifting consumer preferences toward seafood and the growing demand for organic and seafood-based products are among the key factors driving the aquaculture market. In addition to this, the escalating adoption of fish oil in pharmaceuticals, food and beverage (F&B), nutraceutical, cosmetics, and other industries is also positively influencing the market growth. Besides this, the elevating awareness among fish breeders about the benefits of aquaculture practices to maintain overall productivity and gain control over the quality of water is acting as another significant growth-inducing factor. Moreover, the introduction of technologically advanced equipment to analyze fish behavior, monitor the water, and manage facility logistics is further stimulating the global market. Apart from this, the increasing research and development (R&D) activities related to genetic improvements in the species of finfish, manipulation of chromosomes, controlling fish reproduction, and monitoring of parasitic diseases in aquatic animals in open and offshore oceans are anticipated to propel the aquaculture market in the coming years.
