Fish Farming-A Developing Aquaculture Business

 Aquaculture is the term used for farming of organisms living in water.It contains both Marine and fresh water organisms.Here we are going to discuss about fresh water fish farming business.We can divide this business into two types based on the purpose.One is for meat purpose and other is for ornamental purpose.Meat purpose industry plays major role in reducing unemployment in rural areas.Here we can have an introduction about fresh water fish farming for meat purpose.

 We know that fishing from sea is a huge business in India especially in coastal states like Kerala.The main threat that the fishing field now face is that the decrease in availability of fishes in sea and rivers.The price for fish meat also skyrocketing.More and more people use fish meat and its sub-products,but the availability of quality fish products are decreasing.Exporters also have increased demand for fishes.Expanding local and exporting markets leaves huge opportunities for Fish farming business.

Fish farming can be categorized into Three based on method of farming

Extensive:It is the natural way of fish farming.Food for fishes in this system is produced by plants and algae present in the system by photosynthesis.No external inputs will be given.Low running and labor costs are main advantages of this farming,but the availability of fish meat also will be very low compared to other farming methods

Semi-Intensive:In this mode of fish farming,we will give some external inputs such as food,manures,water bodies etc in to the system to promote fish growth and photosynthesis in the system.All other parameters are controlled by system(nature) itself.It is suitable for small scale fish farming.

Intensive farming:In this farming,we will control all parameters in the water artificially.Increased meat production and high quality are its merits.But the cost also will be large.It is suitable for large scale fish farms.
