Aquaculture, the practice of raising marine species in controlled environments, supplies a significant amount of world seafood production.
In North America, aquaculture operations produce a wide variety of seafood. Fish farmers produce Atlantic salmon, arctic char, rainbow trout, tilapia, catfish, and other fish.
Shellfish growers produce oysters, clams, mussels, shrimp, and other shellfish.
Other aquaculture operations focus on specialized products such as fishing baits, ornamental fish, and products used for animal feed.
