Pêches - Aquaculture

Fish farming in freshwater and saltwater, including molluscs, crustaceans and aquatic plants. Unlike fishing, aquaculture, also known as aquafarming, implies the cultivation of aquatic populations under controlled conditions. Mariculture refers to aquaculture practiced in marine environments.
Keywords: agriculture, fish farming, shrimp farming, commercial fish farming, subsistence fish farming, small scale fish farming.

Suitability for commercial farming and potential yield (crops/y) of Nile tilapia, African catfish and Common carp in Africa 1 January 1998 Map derived from the combined suitability of areas apt for commercial fish farming development and operation with areas with potential yield (crops/y) of Nile tilapia, African catfish and Common carp for small-scale farming. Areas with suitability for commercial fish farming were derived from the combined suitability of five land-quality factors important for fish farming development and operation; net annual water requirement for shallow ponds, soil and terrain suitability for the construction of fish ponds, potential livestock wastes and agriculture by-products as feed and fertilizer inputs, potential for farm-gate sales and potential market demand.

 Suitability for small-scale farming and potential yield (crops/y) of Nile tilapia, African catfish and Common carp in Africa 1 January 1998 Map derived from the combined suitability of areas apt for small-scale fish farming development and operation with areas with potential yield (crops/y) of Nile tilapia, African catfish and Common carp for small-scale farming. Areas with suitability for small-scale fish farming were derived from the combined suitability of four land-quality factors important for fish farming development and operation; net annual water requirement for shallow ponds, soil and terrain suitability for the construction of fish ponds, potential livestock wastes and agriculture by-products as feed and fertilizer inputs, and potential for farm-gate sales.

Suitability for commercial fish farming in Latin America and the Caribbean (1997) 1 January 1997 Areas with suitability for commercial fish farming development and operation. Map derived from the combined suitability of five land-quality factors important for fish farming development and operation; net annual water loss from ponds through evaporation and seepage; soil and terrain suitability for ponds; potential for agriculture by-products and fertiliser inputs; potential for farm gate sales; and potential market demand.

Commercial fish farming potential in Africa 3 January 1994 Areas with potential for commercial fish farming under three temperature regimes providing for one crop/year (1C) with fair to good growth (FGG), two crops/year with fair growth (FG) and with good growth (GG) in combination with four land-quality factors important for fish farming development and operation; water availability, engineering capability, and economic considerations ranging from all suitable to one suitable and two optimum (S-NO), or all optimum (all 0).

Subsistence fish farming potential in Africa 3 January 1994 Areas with potential for subsistence fish farming under three temperature regimes providing for one crop/year (1C) with fair to good growth (FGG), two crops/year with fair growth (FG) and with good growth (GG) in combination with four land-quality factors important for fish farming development and operation; water availability, engineering capability, and economic considerations ranging from all suitable to one suitable and two optimum (S-NO), or all optimum (all 0).
