Humans have harvested the seas, lakes and rivers that surround them for millienia. Aquaculture, also referred to as Fish Farming or Shellfish Farming, deals with the breeding, cultivation, nurturing and harvesting of marine or fresh water plants and animals. Today, the Aquaculture industry could be the answer to our global problem of overfishing despite an increase in demand for sea-food. This growing industry requires a qualified and knowledgeable workforce.
