Fish can be cultured in one of four culture systems—ponds, raceways, recirculating systems or cages. A cage is a system that confines the fish or shellfish in a mesh enclosure. A cage has a completely rigid frame (on all sides).
Cage culture uses existing water resources (ponds, rivers, estuaries, open ocean, etc.) but confines the fish inside some type of mesh enclosure. The mesh retains the fish, making it easier to feed, observe and harvest them. The mesh also allows the water to pass freely between the fish and surrounding water resource, thus maintaining good water quality and removing wastes.
