      Aquaculture contributed 43 per cent of aquatic animal food for human consumption in (e.g. fish, crustaceans and molluscs, but excluding mammals, reptiles and aquatic plants) and is expected to grow further to meet the future demand. It is very diverse and, contrary to many perceptions, dominated by shellfish and herbivorous and omnivorous Cited by: Get this from a library!
