When it comes to farming, various terms are used to describe various farming divisions. Agriculture refers to the cultivation of land and the breeding of animals and crops with the main purpose to provide food and other useful products to not only keep civilisation going, but also provide products such as wool and cotton, to only name a few. When we turn our focus to aquaculture, the it immediately shifts to aquatic cultivation, also being known as aquafarming. Aquaculture includes the farming of fish, crustaceans, algae, and aquatic plants for similar reasons to agriculture – providing food and useful products that can be used in our daily lives.
Now that we have familiarised ourselves with the term, we can move on to the practice of aquaculture and how farmers go about this specific method of underwater cultivation. Aquaculture tanks are very popular, as they provide a controlled submerged environment for cultivation.
