Author(s): Priyanka Arya, RS Chauhan, Akansha Khati and Iqra Nazir
Abstract: Organic fish production is a model of production which supplies animal’s lease with low stock density and attaches importance to human health without wing any chemicals, pesticides or the products modified genetically. This practice would entail raising aquatic food in a humane manner that is sustainable and doesn’t pollute the environment. However, lack of certification organisations and standards for organic aquaculture in many countries causes lower production speed for organic aquaculture compared to organic agriculture. Organic aquaculture has attracted the attention of researchers from several academic disciplines as well as that of environmental advocates and entrepreneurial innovators. While the regulatory specifics still need to be addressed, this new organic market niche has significant potential for growth in the future. The review covers general principles, scenario and certification bodies in the context of the organic aquaculture.
