Fun Fact of the Day
Aquaculture refers to finfish and shellfish that are raised to market size in a controlled environment. Often, they are processed and shipped within hours of harvesting. Growing and harvest methods vary, but include ocean pens, freshwater ponds or tanks, earthen saltwater ponds, or suspension off the ocean floor. Production is enhanced by regular stocking, feeding and by providing protection from predators.
