Reference Entry
Fish Culture, the breeding, rearing, and distributing of fish. Fish culture, also called aquaculture, fish farming, and pisciculture, is important in maintaining the supply of food and game fishes, and in extending the area in which they may be caught. Through fish culture, a number of species have been introduced successfully into new areas. The brown trout of Europe, for example, has been naturalized in North America and the North American rainbow trout in New Zealand.
