Aquaculture may seem cruel to most people, when in fact is it a mild way of getting fish. It reduces the trade of seafood, which in turn reduces overfishing which may cause the endangerment of certain fish. It is a smart way to keep most fish around nowadays. This also reduces the pressure of fishing for a certain type of fish since they can be cultured in a fish farm, such as salmon. Salmon is seen as a luxury food, and is therefore high in demand. The culturing of the salmon would make it available at all times. Aquaculture has also given way to the idea of biofuel, which is generated from the culturing of microalgae, which has been something that people want to invest in due to the rise in fuel prices. Aquaculture seems to be beneficial for everyone.
