Issues with Aquaculture

The major impacts for the aquaculture industry include: using more fish than they produce, disease and parasite transfer, the introduction and spread of exotic species, chemical pollution, habitat destruction for farm siting or due to farm activities, and the killing of predators that prey on the farmed species.
