Aquaculture Market: Top Investment Pockets
Currently, salmon fish type has witnessed significant adoption in the aquaculture market, owing to high nutritional value and wide availability of salmons in the Pacific Ocean and Indian Ocean. Moreover, growth in conventional fish farming activities and ease of country regulations and policies promoting aquaculture activities globally has given rise to segments such as milkfish, trout, and sea bass.
Environment in aquaculture is the term used to substantially distinguish physical environments to perform aquaculture. Different types of environment that can be used in aquaculture industry are marine water, fresh water, and brackish water. Each physical environment for aquafarming possesses unique techniques, infrastructure, and operations. Combined revenue of fresh water and marine water accounts for more than three-fourths of the overall market.
R&D in aquaculture is continuously leading to improvements in the aquaculture production system, resulting in increased production efficiency, higher product quality for consumers, and more sustainable industry. Recent developments such as genetic improvement in finfish, controlling of fish reproduction, manipulation of chromosomes set in shellfish, and controlling of parasitic diseases in fishes boost the global aquaculture market. Advancement in technology for off-shore and open ocean aquaculture is furthermore expected to supplement the growth.
Impact of climate change, such as sea level and temperature rise, change in monsoon rain patterns, and extreme climatic events, disturbs the ecological balance in the world water bodies. Global warming and its subsequent increase lead to negative impact on aquaculture in temperate zones because such increase could exceed the optimal temperature range of organisms currently cultured. Such impacts may influence the reproduction cycles of various species of fishes. This adverse condition is expected to restrain the market growth.
Moreover, water pollution caused by humans on the sea shores and coastal areas has raised the risk of diseases in fishes near the coastal areas, which further impedes the growth.
Asia-Pacific Aquaculture Market
Population growth, economic growth, and social factors, such as traditional fish consumption patterns, drive the market in Asia-Pacific. The present level of aquaculture technology is too low to make efficient use of protein-rich fishes by increasing their production.
