Aquaculture Information

Through its field force, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) provides agricultural producers with a broad range of cooperative programs for protecting the health of animals and plants. Aquaculture, the managed production of aquatic animals and plants, continues to grow as a major agribusiness enterprise. APHIS programs such as Veterinary Services (VS) and Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) serve important functions for the protection of aquatic animal and plant health, respectively.
