What is the difference between aquaculture and pisciculture?
Aquaculture is salt water or fresh water breeding, rearing and harvesting of aquatic flora and fauna for commercial use.Aquaculture is the cultivation of aquatic products under controlled conditions. It involves all the fish products obtained from farming on both salt water and fresh water. Aquaculture is otherwise called as blue revolution. Aquaculture helps in nutrient build-up, prevents non-native species from escaping into local waterways, lessens the disease outbreaks in aquatic life and also increases the quality of the final product.
Psciculture is just culturing of fish or fish farming to obtain fish products. Pisciculture provides us fish for food, cod liver oil etc. Pisciculture can be done both in marine water and fresh waters.
