You probably know farms
are home to cows, chickens, and crops such as wheat. Today we are visiting
another kind of farm - a fish farm. Fish farming is part of a science
called aquaculture. Aquaculture means raising animals and plants in
water. Fish and seafood
crops for many farmers. Fish are raised for food, bait, and pets.
Farmers sell the fish they raise to processors, grocery stores, and
restaurants. Many farmers also raise fish in ponds and charge people
a fee to fish. Catfish,
striped bass are some of the fish that are raised on a fish farm.
