Aquaculture is the farming of fish, crustaceans, molluscs, aquatic plants, algae, and other organisms. Aquaculture involves cultivating freshwater and saltwater populations under controlled conditions, and can be contrasted with commercial fishing, which is the harvesting of wild fish. (wiki)

Occurence of Aquaculture at the WHS (in the core zone) must be important enough to be described in the AB evaluation..
