Aquaculture, to be more precise, is skillful procedure of nurturing aquatic organisms for human consumption. It goes in the same line to agriculture, if we replace plants or livestock with fishes.


Fish farming is another term referred to aquaculture. Aquaculture can be performed anywhere from coastal ocean waters to freshwater ponds and rivers to tanks on the land.


Different Types of Aquaculture

  1. Mariculture

Mariculture needs seawater. This type of aquaculture is done either by the ocean, a segmented part of the ocean, or in ponds containing seawater. Molluscs, shellfish, prawn, and seaweed are the marine organisms often bred in such parts of the oceans.


Another great fragment of mariculture is the seaweeds. These seaweeds and species are used in cosmetics and jwelry manufacturing industries. For instance, collagen extracted from seaweed is used in some facial creams whereas pearls are hand-picked from molluscs and turned into stunning fashion accessories.

  1. Fish Farming

Needless to say that fish farming is the basic type of aquaculture. The process includes the careful breeding of fish. It can be done in any freshwater, preferably seawater.  This method of breeding helps in creating a source for food and consumption.


Comparatively easier, the process of fish farming only needs proper water conditions and temperatures. There is no need of a larger space for this type of farming as the breeding species such as tilapia are way too small.


  1. Algaculture

Algaculture involves the farming of algae. As we all know, algae are microbial organisms with resemblance to animal and plant characteristics. For economic viability, they are harvested in huge numbers. Algae are used for various purposes. An example of such application is the source of energy for smartphones. Exxon mobile is working towards developing them as a new energy source.


  1. Open-net pen and Cage Systems

Open-net pen and Cage systems are another types of aquaculture which are implanted offshore and in freshwater lakes.


First, net cages of between 6 and 60 cubic feet (pens) are implanted in the water with the fish inside it. With a high absorption of fish in the pens, water environments become purified from chemicals, wastes, or parasites. The fishes in the net cages also entice predacious animals and bigger fish, which are get trapped in the nets.
