Fish farming, also known as pisciculture, involves raising fish commercially in tanks or enclosures such as fish ponds. These fish are raised mainly for food. It is the major form of aquaculture, while other methods may fall under mariculture. A fish farming facility that releases juvenile fish into the wild for recreational fishing or to supplement a species' natural numbers is generally referred to as a fish hatchery. Globally, the most important fish species produced in fish farming are salmon, carp, tilapia, and catfish.
The fish farming market has witnessed significant growth owing to factors such as rising demand for seafood in developed and developing countries. Moreover, a significant shift of fish farmers towards sustainable fish farming techniques provides huge market opportunities for the key players in the market. However, the harmful impact on the environment caused due to fish farming is projected to hamper the overall growth of the fish farming market.
