The increasing global importance of aquaculture as a food-producing activity is mirrored by the continuing decline in wild fish stocks. With this explosion in aquaculture production have come attendant environmental problems. Owing to its tight linkage with natural ecosystems, it can be argued that aquaculture has the potential to have a much more profound impact on environmental quality than terrestrial farming systems of equal size.
