The farming of aquatic organisms like fishes, aquatic plants, molluscus, crustaceans etc, is known as aqualculture. Aquaculture, also known as aquafarming, is the farming of aquatic organisms such as fish, crustaceans, molluscs and aquatic plants.  In fish species seminars and ethical issues meetings about the majority countries and specific aquaculture policy article does not exist and aquaculture is usually included in the Fishery Sector Development Policy, document. It is also mentioned in further strategic policy documents; those for Industry and Environment are the two major policy documents.

Salmon aquaculture (farming) is the industrial production of salmon from egg to market in a net-cage, pond or contained system. Most of the industry still uses open net-cages in the ocean, and these floating feedlots hold up to a million fish in an area the size of two football fields. The open net-cages are generally sited in sheltered bays along the coast in close proximity to wild salmon streams and rivers. Open net-cage salmon farming is currently one of the most harmful aquaculture production systems and poses environmental threats in all regions it is practiced.

Sustainable aquaculture is a dynamic concept and the sustainability of an aquaculture system will vary with species, location, societal norms and the state of knowledge and technology. The promotion of sustainable aquaculture development requires that "enabling environments", in particular those aimed at ensuring continuing human resource development and capacity building, are created and maintained.

Oysters are grown by sea farming technique. The most important stage in setting up an oyster hatchery is site location. The site must have good water quality. One must look at the watershed, gathering as much data as possible about salinity and water temperature, and talk with locals about any industrial impact on the targeted site.

Scallop aquaculture is the commercial activity of cultivating (farming) scallops until they reach a marketable size and can be sold as a consumer product. Wild juvenile scallops, or spat, were collected for growing in Japan as early as 1934. The first attempts to fully cultivate scallops in farm environments were not recorded until the 1950s and 1960s.

Recirculation aquaculture systems (RAS) represent a new and unique way to farm fish. Instead of the traditional method of growing fish outdoors in open ponds and raceways, this system rears fish at high densities, in indoor tanks with a "controlled" environment. Recirculating systems filter and clean the water for recycling back through fish culture tanks

The methods and the process used for catching or capturing the fishes for various purposes is called as the fishing technology. Fishing techniques are methods for catching fish. The term may also be applied to methods for catching other aquatic animals such as molluscs (shellfish, squid, octopus) and edible marine invertebrates. Fishing techniques include hand gathering, spearfishing, netting, angling and trapping. Techniques of Fishing: are methods for catching fish.

Fisheries & Livestock Production focuses on maintaining their role in the balance of species and habitats in the ecosystem. Defined as a science of breeding, feeding, and tending domestic animals, especially farm animals or is the management and care of farm animals by humans for profit, in which genetic qualities and behavior, considered to be advantageous to humans, are further developed. Livestock is a noun where the horses, cattle, sheep, and other useful animals kept or raised on a farm or ranch.

Cryobiology is the branch of biology that studies the effects of low temperatures on living things within Earth's cryosphere or in science. The word cryobiology is derived from the Greek words kryos means cold and bios means life, and logo means  science. In practice, cryobiology is the study of biological material or systems at temperatures below normal. Materials or systems studied may include proteins, cells, tissues, organs, or whole organisms.

Offshore aquaculture, also known as open ocean aquaculture, is an emerging approach to mariculture or marine farming where fish farms are moved some distance offshore. The farms are positioned in deeper and less sheltered waters, where ocean currents are stronger than they are inshore. To withstand the high energy offshore environment, farms must be built to be more robust than those inshore

Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) is a cytogenetic technique that uses fluorescent probes that bind to only those parts of the chromosome with a high degree of sequence complementarity. It was developed by biomedical researchers in the early 1980s and is used to detect and localize the presence or absence of specific DNA sequences on chromosomes. Fluorescence microscopy can be used to find out where the fluorescent probe is bound to the chromosomes. FISH is often used for finding specific features in DNA for use in genetic counseling, medicine, and species identification. FISH can also be used to detect and localize specific RNA targets (mRNA, lncRNA and miRNA) in cells, circulating tumor cells, and tissue samples.

Fish meal and fish oil have been the traditional starting points for good fish feed, because they contain the nutrients that fish need. Access to fish meal and fish oil has become more difficult during the past 15 years due to the growth of the aquaculture industry, so the fraction of other ingredients that satisfy the nutritional needs of fish in aquaculture has increased. Approximately 70% of the raw materials in salmon feed is now obtained from plants. Further, krill and some yeast strains are other examples of raw materials that contain beneficial nutrients.
