The world's natural fisheries have been depleted. As a result, moratoriums on commercial fishing have been implemented in many parts of the world as populations continue to grow. Aquaculture is a rapidly growing form of food production that has successfully yielded a substantial amount of fish and shellfish to help feed the world's growing population and growing appetite for seafood. However, this method of food production is faced with many challenges, some of which include increasing costs, more stringent government regulations, and limited water supplies. These challenges have created a need for more advanced monitoring and feeding technology in order to create tightly controlled and sustainable growth conditions.
