Fisheries and Aquaculture
Caleb-Regional Manager, Randy- Assistant to the RM
Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organisms, including fish, molluscs, crustaceans and aquatic plants.
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.
Establish Gov't. restrictions!!! Our government has refused to put limitations on aquaculture.
