Conclusion

Aquaculture is stunning in its diversity and complexity. It is the equivalent of combining all forms of animal agriculture together as what might be called terrestrial culture. The growth of aquaculture has provided the supply to fuel the increase in total growth of the world supply of fisheries products. This growth is occurring during times of increased environmental concerns and continued population increases that challenge our ability to feed populations. Aquaculture represents a mechanism to contribute both to feeding the poor and to supplying a diversity of high-valued products that generate economic growth through business development. Continued growth, however, will depend upon developing solutions to the challenges posed by declining resource availability and continued population pressure.
