Freshwater aquaculture is the practice of raising and breeding aquatic animals and plants for commercial reasons in ponds, reservoirs, lakes, rivers, and other inland waterways (including brackish water), all of which play an essential role in the aquaculture sector. Freshwater aquaculture, or the captive growth of freshwater creatures, is quickly gaining worldwide recognition. Aquaculture now accounts for almost one-third of total seafood output (freshwater and marine), with freshwater fish accounting for the majority (42 percent). Freshwater aquaculture systems, which range from intensive pond or cage-based systems to vast stocking of enclosed water bodies, are critical for rural people's nutrition and livelihood. These systems are frequently connected with agriculture and make use of farm by-products. Finfish and crustaceans, as well as mollusks, amphibians, and reptiles, are among the species produced.
