Aquaculture is an occupation in which fishing farming is practiced in the different cultures such as marine water, freshwater, and brackish water. It is the procedure of breeding, rearing, and harvesting fish, shellfish, plants, algae, and other aquatic organisms in various types of water environments. Harvested fish are further used in various end-use applications such as in the food industry, in dietary supplements, healthcare and pharmaceutical products, cosmetics, fish meal, etc.

Global Aquaculture Market: Market Dynamics

Increasing government strategic initiatives is a key factor expected to fuel growth of the global aquaculture market. For instance, the government of Australia provided US$ 1.85 Mn to establish two aquaculture development zones in the Kimberley and Mid-West regions of Western Australia in 2014. On 22 August 2014, the Minister for Fisheries declared the Kimberley Aquaculture Development Zone in Cone Bay, which was the first aquaculture development zone to be established in Western Australia, and is an area of 2,000 hectares that can sustainably produce around 20,000 tons of marine fish per annum.

However, environmental concerns related to aquaculture that include water flow considerations, pollution from effluents, handling escapees, and unhealthy culture conditions are expected to restrain market growth over the forecast period. In addition, disease outbreaks impact production of fish, which in turn leads to low sales and export activities.

Rice-fish culturing is considered a good way for rice and fish cultivations cumulatively since fish get a safe living environment in dense rice plants. In exchange, fish provide protection from insects and circulate oxygen around the farm. This in turn is expected to create opportunities for players operating in global aquaculture market.

Adoption of sustainable practices for aquaculture is a key trend observed in the global aquaculture market. Several certification programs have made progress in defining key characteristics of sustainable aquaculture. The sustainability of a species depends on its feeding and lifecycle habits, as well as the farming operation.
