Abstract

Small scale remote aquaculture practices have been going on around the world for thousands of years. Trends in recent decades show that the aquaculture industry has been growing steadily, reaching a global state, and contributing significantly to the world supply of aquatic products. It is believed that aquaculture could offer the solution to the current problems of overexploitation of the world’s oceans by commercial capture fishing techniques. However, commercial aquaculture practices are still in their early years, and contain problems of their own. These problems are starting to slow the growth of the aquaculture industry. The present thesis aims to review the current state of the aquaculture industry and the different techniques used to farm aquatic organisms for global distribution. The issues surrounding these techniques will be discussed followed by viable solutions currently being investigated and employed. The state and techniques for commercial capture fisheries are also reviewed to provide a clear picture to why a sustainable alternative to capture fisheries need to be developed.
