    Mariculture involves the cultivation of marine organisms in seawater for food and other products either in the open ocean, an enclosed section of the ocean, or in tanks, ponds or raceways. About 600 aquatic species are cultured all over the world in a variety of farming systems and facilities of varying input intensities and technological sophistication. Mariculture activities other than for human consumption include live bait farming for fishing, live ornamental animal and plant species and ornamental products (pearls and shells), fishes cultured as feed for certain carnivorous farmed species, culture of live feed organisms such as plankton, Artemia and marine worms for use as feed in hatcheries and grow-out systems, aquaculture hatchery and nursery outputs for on-growing in captivity or stocking to the wild and capture based aquaculture.
