Introduction

Aquaculture—the cultivation of fish and aquatic animals and plants—is expanding to meet consumer demand. This publication surveys important considerations for planning an aquaculture enterprise. It will help you identify the production system, species and marketing strategy most appropriate to your situation. The wide range of cultured species and production methods makes it impossible to provide a full discussion of aquaculture in a single document of this kind. Determining the best aquaculture enterprise for you will require considerable research. A good place to start is the list of resources and contacts in the Further resources section and in the two Appendices.
