Abstract

Aquaculture is considered as a sunrise sector for increasing fish production since the capture fisheries have reached almost stagnation levels. With more than 8% annual growth globally, the sector is now considered as the fastest growing food producing sector in the world. Today aquaculture provides around half of the fish for human consumption and this share will need to grow further. The global aquaculture production showed that 25.8 million tonnes (m t) of freshwater organisms were produced (43.8%), 30.2 m t (50.9%) of marine organisms, and 3.4 m t of brackishwater organisms comprising nearly 63% shrimps (FAO, 2006).
