Aquaculture is the raising of water animals such as fish for food, or the growing of plants in the water for food. Farming finfish, shellfish, and aquatic plants are known collectively. as aquaculture, is one of the world’s fastest-growing food sectors.

Did you know?

For most of the modern history of aquaculture, only costly fish and shellfish like salmon and shrimp were harvested. But new technologies are allowing cheaper and more efficient cultivation of fish for food, and such common fish as cod are now being farmed. Seaweeds and other algae are also being grown–for food (mostly in Asia), cattle feed, fertilizer, and experimentally as a source of energy. Aquaculture is now the world’s fastest-growing form of food production. We are very committed to implementing this project in Somalia. DOVE is here to make your aquaculture dream come true.
