Definition of aquaculture and recirculating systems
As the human population continues to grow, finding ways to feed these people is one of the most important challenges facing the world. Even in times of economic crisis, men, women and children need to eat. And a healthy, protein-rich diet is needed to keep the growing population from succumbing to the disease. Fish and other aquatic organisms fit the model for protein sources.
Harvests of wild sources of fish, shellfish, and other aquatic species cannot meet the demand presented by human population growth. Attempting to meet demand through commercial fishing could lead to overfishing and the complete loss of these species. Therefore, it also provides relief to wildlife so that they can continue to be an important source.
