Journal of Aquaculture and Environmental Impacts


Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organisms, including fish, molluscs, crustaceans, and plants in all types of water environments including ponds, rivers, lakes, and the ocean. Aquaculture provides an efficient means of protein production. The environmental impact of aquaculture varies widely, depending on the species being farmed, the methods used, and where the farm is located. In spite of possible environmental problems including water pollution and the use of chemicals, as well as threats to the natural fish population, aquaculture provide much-needed food and income, especially for small-scale farmers in developing countries.
