AQUACULTURE FARMING



WHAT IS AQUACULTURE FARMING?



Aquaculture (fish farming) allows farmers to rear fish for subsistence or for supply to commercial markets. It utilises sustainable production methods and has increased in popularity over the years.

Aquaculture has the potential to provide fishermen without work with new jobs. The growth of this industry has led to a price decrease in some of South Africa’s most popular fish, making these more accessible to the broader market.

In addition, a growing aquaculture sector has the potential to decrease the pressure on wild fish stocks.
