Globally, since aquaculture became a significant contributor to the food fish supply, inland aquaculture has played, and continues to play, a dominant role. China dominates global freshwater aquaculture production. Much has been written on the freshwater aquaculture sector in China and its importance and contribution to global food security. The climatic regimes in China are wide ranging and together with the associated habitats the country has a relatively rich aquatic flora and fauna. In China, all natural (rivers and lakes) and man-made water bodies such as reservoirs and ponds are used for aquaculture. As regards trends of inland aquaculture in China, two aspects can be expected. First, is the stricter and more controlled use of lakes, reservoirs and rivers for aquaculture. Second, to compensate for aquaculture production losses from natural water bodies, more attention will be paid to the environmental control of activities in water bodies.
