Summary of the Aquaculture Market Report can be accessed on the website at:

Currently, aquaculture is necessary to meet the food demand and supply. This industry provides high-quality and disease-free fish by rearing them in an environment that meets the hygiene standards. Aquaculture is also a way to conserve the species on the verge of extinction. The global aquaculture market is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period, owing to increase in health awareness among consumers regarding benefits of consumption of seafood, and rise in government rules and regulations in different countries that promote fish farming to meet the growing demand to cope with food insecurities. However, increase in water pollution and changes in climatic conditions hamper the market growth.

According to Eswara Prasad, Team Lead, Chemical & Materials at Allied Market Research, "Increased concern towards food security, technological advancement in the industry, and rise in awareness about a healthy diet are prime factors resulting in growth of the aquaculture industry. However, global warming and water pollution may impede the market growth in the coming years."

Based on the type of environment, the aquaculture market is segmented into fresh water, marine water, and brackish water. The fresh water segment generated the highest revenue, accounting for about two-thirds share in 2015. It is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period, followed by marine water segment at 5.1%.

Among the types of fish, the carps segment generated maximum revenue, accounting for more than 20% share in 2015, due to their hardiness and adaptability
