China has the largest aquaculture industry in the world, accounting for about two-thirds of total cultivated aquatic products across the globe. In 2015, output for the Fish Farming industry is expected to reach 19.5 million tons, or 38.3% of total cultivated aquatic products and 28.2% of total aquatic products in China. Over the five years to 2015, industry revenue is expected to grow at an annualized rate of 5.7%, with an anticipated 5.0% jump in 2015 to $39.2 billion. Industry profit has also increased due to rising shares of high value-added products like sea cucumbers and abalone before 2013.

These establishments use intervention methods in the rearing process to enhance production, such as holding in captivity, regular stocking, feeding, and protection from predators. Marine fishing and freshwater fish farming are not included in the industry.
