  3. What is Aquaculture? Aquaculture is the breeding, farming, and harvesting of all kinds of freshwater and marine species of fish, shellfish, and plants. Aquaculture produces food fish, sport fish, bait fish, ornamental fish, crustaceans, mollusks, algae, sea vegetables, and fish eggs (NOAA, 2012).
  4. Types of Aquaculture ● Sea ranching: culture of juvenile animals that are produced by hatcheries and can also be wild caught. ● Surface lines: culture generally used to grow shellfish; line culture systems with parallel ropes that are buoyed at the surface and anchored to the substrate at each end. ● Racks: culture used in Australia that is used for edible oysters such as the rock oyster and put into subsurface intertidal pools.
  5. Types of Aquaculture ● Sea cages: culture for intensive marine aquaculture of finfish ● Ponds: culture based on purpose built earthen ponds, constructed on coastal lands and close to estuarine parts of river systems. ● Hatcheries: culture that produces a diverse range of species for commercial aquaculture industry or for the aquarium trade. Sea Cage Hatcheries Racks
  6. Why aquaculture? ● Raising fish is said to be seven times more efficient compared to raising cattle ● With the demand of fish worldwide, between 2010 and 2050 the production of fish farming and shellfish production will greatly rise ● With the major concerns of fish stock and maintaining the health of the ocean, aquaculture will play a significant role in making this concern less severe ● As the population grows drastically and overfishing is lessening our wild fish production, aquaculture will play a key role in meeting the demands for these foods
  7. Importance/Benefits Three types of benefits of the importance of aquaculture is health, economic and environment ● Health- All over the entire world seafood has played an important factor of regular diets. The seafood diet has been proven throughout the world that it has fought cardiovascular disease , cancer, alzheimer's ,and many more illnesses. ● Economic- With the poor economy we live in it gives the regions with poor soils and farming lands an opportunity to engage in the aquaculture as a form of agriculture. ● Environment- With the use of unsustainable fishing it has reduced and helped improve the disease transfer in the oceans and waters our sea creatures live in.
  8. Sustainability In order for an aquaculture system to be sustainable it needs: ● Environmental sustainability: state in which the demands placed on the environment can be met without reducing its capacity to allow all people to live well today and in the future. ● Economic sustainability: the ability of an economy to support a defined level of economic production indefinitely. ● Social sustainability: the process within a community to form positive conditions. The quality of societies.
  9. Issues ● Commercial fisheries have been declining and there has been an insufficient amount of seafood. ● The decline of fisheries is an issue due to overfishing. ● Another issue that is being faced is the continuous growth of human population. As the human population increases so does the need for seafood.
  10. Examples of Aquaculture Species Crustaceans Fish Molluscs
  11. Crustaceans Crustaceans provide omega fatty acids, is a positive source of triglycerides. They have high vitamin and mineral content and are an excellent source for amino acids. Currently there are over 620 crustaceans on the endangered species list. 6 of these are in North America which includes the USA and Mexico. Crustaceans are an ancient group of organisms with a fossil record stretching back to the early Cambrian 600 million years ago. There is a Russian fossil of a 12 legged Sea Spider called Karagassiema that is reported to have come from rocks 650 million years old.
  12. Fish Farming of fish is the most common cultured animal in aquaculture, which involves raising fish for commercial use (seafood, ornamental fish, sport fish, and baitfish). Cultured fish are raised in recirculating systems; species include tilapia, yellow perch, catfish, largemouth bass, koi/carp, shiners, bluegills and sunfish, which can all be raised in this type of system. Over 100 species of fish are harvested through cultured ways in order to produce fish because of the decline of fish populations in the world, especially species of fish that are in demand.
  13. Molluscs ● Invertebrates of Mollusca phylum ● Snails, squids, octopuses, slugs, oysters, clams, mussels, scallops, etc. ○ Consist of having a soft body and some have an external shell ○ Live in damp and aquatic habitats Benefits ● Cleans the water, enhances water clarity ● Removes nitrogen from water ● Promotes eelgrass survival ● Maintains algae, kelp, and bacteria levels ● Food source for many years
  14. Crustaceans cont. “While many crustaceans occur in large numbers others are much rarer and The International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) has 479 species on its list as of 2000 AD. One of these, the Socorro Isopod (Thermosphaeroma thermophilum) is now considered extinct in the wild. Of the rest 57 are listed as Critically Endangered and 77 as Endangered.” (IUCN)
  15. Who are the stakeholders & the role they play? Community Hawaii Aquaculture and Aquaponics Association International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) NAAFE Economics of Fisheries, Aquaculture and Seafood NOAA, and many more The International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) is an international organization working in the field of nature conservation and sustainable use of natural resources. It is involved in data gathering and analysis, research, field projects, advocacy, lobbying and education. NOAA holds bi-monthly public forums that everyone interested in Aquaculture can and should attend. It is important that we partner with our stakeholders and participate in public forums to share our ideas, provide feedback and receive feedback from the community as stakeholders. We propose a joint mission to help fill the need of seafood locally and perhaps grow to be a supplier and create new employment opportunities.
  16. Stakeholders Continuation According to the State of Hawaii Animal Industry Division (https://hdoa.hawaii.gov/ai/aquaculture-and-livestock-support-services-branch/) “63% of seafood is consumed in Hawaii is imported from the U.S. mainland according to their study in 2010.” Here in Hawaii seafood holds a cultural meaning and foundation as well as the importance for sustenance.
  17. Conclusion After a conversation with Professor Garcia-Ortega at UH Hilo’s Pacific Aquaculture & Coastal Resource Center (PACRC), it is stated that there is a definite gap between priorities among citizens concern of depletion of our food sources. With the possible reason being the easiness of simply purchasing what you need at a local store rather than needing to gather it yourself. PACRC’s current initial focus is ornamental fish and pearl oysters while also raising a variety of fish like the Red Snapper, Yellowtail Kohala, and shrimp. With the rate of our growth population, along with overfishing, we will most likely run out of seafood and species. As the rate of aquaculture grows we will be able to successfully reproduce and fulfill the needs and high demand for seafoods and species for generations to come.
