Aquaculture planning, development in Brazilian federal waters

The aquaculture industry in Brazil is moving toward further expansion with the support of the federal government. A key strategy of the More Fishing and Aquaculture plan is the development of aquaculture in federal waters. The plan promotes sustainable development of fisheries and aquaculture by linking those involved and consolidating state policies addressing social inclusion, security and food sovereignty. Tilapia is the main farmed fish, although tambaqui and others have potential for large-scale production due to their wide acceptance by consumers.
