The global aquaculture market reached a value of around US$ 156.6 Billion in 2020. Aquaculture, or fish farming, refers to the controlled process of breeding, rearing, harvesting and cultivating fish, shellfish, algae and other aquatic organisms. It is usually conducted in coastal ocean waters, freshwater ponds, rivers and in on-land tanks. This aids in food production, restoration of habitats and endangered and threatened species populations, and aquariums building. It also minimizes waste creation by producing feed for fish and shellfish, providing a safe and natural breeding environment to the aquatic population and optimum utilization of agricultural and natural resources. Aquaculture also includes the production of ornamental fishes to support commercial and recreational marine fisheries.
The rising demand for seafood, along with increasing farming of aquatic animals, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the growing demand for fish oil across various industries, such as food and beverages, pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals, is also driving the market growth. Fish breeders are increasingly becoming aware of the benefits of adopting efficient aquaculture practices to gain control over the quality of water and maintain overall biological productivity. They are also introducing technologically advanced equipment to monitor the water, analyze fish behavior and manage facility logistics. In line with this, extensive research and development (R&D) activities, such as genetic improvements in the species of finfish, controlling fish reproduction, manipulation of chromosomes and monitoring of parasitic diseases in aquatic animals in off-shore and open oceans, are also expected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global aquaculture market to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during the next five years.
