In broad outline mariculture may be classified under four major categories, viz., I) culturing fish and other animals in hatcheries for release with the expectation of increasing commercial catches, 2) capture of young ones and rearing them in confinement to marketable size, 3) raising of the young from eggs obtained from wild parents and their retention and feeding in enclosures until they attain marketable size and 4) hatching of young from eggs obtained from brood stock maintained for the purpose and raising of young in confined enclosures until they reach marketable size.
