13/05/14: NOAA Fisheries - Exploring U.S. Aquaculture

"NOAA Fisheries provides an overview of aquaculture in the United States and explores its advantages, challenges, and growth. Aquaculture—also known as fish or shellfish farming—refers to the breeding, rearing, and harvesting of plants and animals in all types of water environments including ponds, rivers, lakes, and the ocean. This kind of farming is the world's fastest-growing form of food production and a vital component of our food supply. Aquaculture also supports commercial fisheries, enhances habitat and at-risk species, and maintains economic activity in coastal communities and at working waterfronts."
