Overview


Aquaculture is the production of aquatic animals and plants under controlled conditions for all or parts of their lifecycles. Interest in aquacultural production is on the rise because restrictions on the wild harvest of many seafood species may diminish wild harvest seafood supplies. During the last two decades, the value of U.S. aquacultural production rose to nearly $1 billion.

ERS provides background, data, and analysis on the domestic aquaculture industry and U.S. trade in aquacultural products.
