Aquaculture, the farming of aquatic animals and plants has been the world's fastest food production system for the past decade with an average compound growth rate of 9.6% per year since 1984. On the basis of the rapid growth of the aquaculture sector and recent stagnation of landings from capture fisheries, aquaculture is seen by many as a potential source of hope to meet the current and future needs of a growing population in search of food.
