Freshwater Fish farming in The United States

Americans import 55% of their fish products requirement from other countries.Which clearly indicate that the Local market in United States still need to be explored and there are good opportunities still exists in America for fish farmers.This is also clear that there are some local farmers who supply to the local market and play major role in fish farming sector.Even though United States produce negligible percentage of the total world wide fish farm production,major fish farming countries like China,India,Vietnam,Thailand etc are targeting to tap the opportunities in United States market.

The opportunity for freshwater fish farming is huge in America especially in western states and southern states.States like Virginia having lots of water bodies are suitable for freshwater fish farming.This suitable for both extensive and intensive fish farming.The climate is very good and soil fertility also positive for fish farming.Compared to 2013,2014 showed positive growth in terms of freshwater fish production.This will repeat in 2015 also.There are few reasons behind this increase in production.

Initially there were few big players in Freshwater fish farming sector.Most of the farms were small,family run businesses where production were limited.later some more big players also entered in this sector which increased production at the same time provided more competition to the small farms.Most of the Small farms responded positively and they increased their productivity and thus started to contribute well the the sector.The increased demand for fish products in internal market also helped farmers to face this situation.Now this sector is showing positive trends in terms of productivity as well as profitability.Another important factor which increased local fish farming is the farming for Home use and  Recreation fishing.Both contributed their own numbers to the total production.

There are some issues which retard the growth of freshwater fish farming in United States.The perception of Fish farming among common people and government agencies are not good.Most of them believe fish farming will pollute water and the products are not organic.This contributes great challenges for freshwater fish farming.Some people prefer Seafood only.But the changes are occurring and the mindsets are getting changed.It is expected that in nearby future Freshwater fish farming sector in US will grow exponentially and will contribute like,China,India,Thailand etc..
