Aquaculture by The Numbers

Aquaculture is the process by which fish are farmed in a controlled environment.  This is not the same as commercial fishing, which is the process of catching wild fish.   Here are some numbers about this growing industry:

1 – Aquaculture is the fastest-growing source of animal protein

1.7 – tons (in millions) of farmed shrimp produced annually

50 – the percentage of farmed fish sent to be quick frozen after processing

60 – the percentage of which aquaculture production has grown from 2000 -2008

90 – the percentage of aquaculture produced in the Asia- Pacific region as of 2008

39,000 – tons of farmed salmon produced by Canada in 2010 on the Atlantic Coast
