Aquaculture is the practise of raising fish or shellfish primarily for human consumption. It includes constant engagement with the environment because it is done in ponds, cages, or open water bodies. If it is done so in a way that is both socially and environmentally appropriate, aquaculture can be a sustainable activity. The term "sustainable aquaculture" is related to an aquaculture production system that is considerate of the local human and social environment, utilises renewable resources to the greatest extent possible, provides animals with living conditions that are as close as possible to those of their native habitat, and uses recycled materials. The Best Management Practises (BMPs) can be used to achieve sustainability. BMPs include things like following the law, being socially responsible, choosing appropriate sites for farms, building them well, and using the best practises for farm management throughout the process, everything from pond layout to harvesting and after harvesting management measures. Adopting BMPs would result in increased output, productivity, and profitability as well as obligations to the environment and society.
