Aquaculture is defined as the rearing of aquatic organisms under controlled conditions. The aquaculturist has control over all or a part of the organism’s life cycle. This control sets aquaculture apart from traditional fisheries in which organisms are harvested from natural stocks. Aquaculture is similar to terrestrial (land-based) agriculture, except that in aquaculture the crop is reared in water.
