Polyculture and Reservoir Ranching
Aquaculture is the farming and caring of aquatic organisms including fish, mollusks, crustaceans and aquatic plants under individual or corporate ownership. Aquaculture has been almost entirely responsible for the expansion of available food fish since 1988, with production doubling in inland waters over the last decade. However, the majority of the expansion in aquaculture production is from Asian countries, largely China.
Geographic Adaptability: South, Midwest and North Central regions of the United States. Temperate climates globally.
