Aquaculture Information

Aquaculture is the farming of freshwater and saltwater organisms such as finfish, mollusks, crustaceans and aquatic plants. Also known as aquafarming, aquaculture involves cultivating aquatic populations under controlled conditions, and can be contrasted with commercial fishing, which is the harvesting of wild fish. Commercial aquaculture supplies one half of the fish and shellfish that is directly consumed by humans.

Mariculture refers to aquaculture practiced in marine environments. Particular kinds of aquaculture include algaculture , fish farming, shrimp farming, oyster farming, the growing of cultured pearls and the growing and selling of ornamental fish. Particular methods include aquaponics, which integrates fish farming and plant farming.

The indigenous Australians of the Gunditjmara people in Victoria may have practised the aquaculture of eels as early as 6000 BC. There is evidence that about 100 square kilometres of volcanic floodplains in the vicinity of Lake Condah were developed into a complex of channels and dams, that they used woven traps to capture eels, and that the capture and smoking of eels supported them year round.
