    Mariculture can be defined as the controlled cultivation and harvest of aquatic organisms, including finfish, shellfish, and aquatic plants. Mariculture operations are conducted at both land and water facilities. Land-based mariculture systems include ponds, tanks, raceways, and water flow-through and recirculating systems. Water-based mariculture systems include net pens, cages, ocean ranching, longline culture, and bottom culture. Mariculture can provide a number of socio-economic benefits, including food provision, improved nutrition and health, generation of income and employment, diversification of primary products, and increased trade earnings through the export of high-value products.
