Currently nearly 106 nations are involved in farming marine organisms. During the last six and half decades, the potential of aquaculture for food production and the alleviation of poverty optie people living in coastal areas, many of whom are among the poorest in the world, were widely recogoized and legal policies were drafted in many countries and implemented to support the farmers.
