It is the fastest growing, animal based food production sector with 73.8 million tonnes of production in 2014. Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) define aquaculture as it is the farming of aquatic organisms including fish, molluscs, crustaceans and aquatic plants. Farming implies some sort of intervention in the rearing process to enhance production, such as regular stocking, feeding, protection from predators, etc. It is a diverse sector, which employs different strategies for fish production. There are two major strategies are followed in the sector including hatchery based aquaculture (HBA) and capture based aquaculture (CBA). The HBA allows the commercial and viable production for number of organisms through the management of their entire life cycles.
