Description
 
Provides a statistical overview of the status and future outlook of aquaculture in the U.S. As of 1993, aquaculture was the fastest growing segment of agriculture in the U.S. Although the farming of aquatic plants and animals was practiced prior to 2000 BC in China, it was not until the early 1870s that aquaculture began taking root in the U.S, beginning with trout farming to replenish wild stock in streams and lakes. In the 1980s-1990s, aquaculture has shown considerable growth, with U.S. fish farms cultivating approx. 30 different species of fish and shellfish. There has also been an increase in aquatic plant culture in the U.S. which has value in the food, drug, and cosmetic industries. Includes a bibliography of citations mostly from 1989 to 1993.
