Fish farming procedure facilitates the rearing process to enhance production by regular stocking, feeding, and protection from predators. This procedure is practiced by some farmers in developing countries and by multinational companies that can hold the ownership of the stock being cultivated. Approximately 580 species are currently farmed all over the world, representing a wealth of genetic diversity both within and among species.

Increase in consumption of fishes as a cultural tradition of many people and rise in awareness about the health benefits of fishes are anticipated to boost the growth of the global fish farming market. In addition, increase in application of fish oil across various industries such as dietary supplements, food industry, healthcare, and pharmaceutical boosts the market growth.

Developed countries export their fishes to other developed nations, such as Norway exports salmon to Japan. On the other, developing countries expand their exports by supplying fishes in developed countries such as market without facing prohibitive customs duties; however, they may face market access issues related to non-tariff measures. For some specific products, such as canned tuna, tariff rate quotas are applied, whereby a certain quantity per year can be imported at a reduced tariff. The widespread reduction of import tariffs has been a major driver of the international trade over the past 25 years. Regional trade agreements are reciprocal agreements establishing preferential terms of trade among two or more trading partners in the same region. Thus, regional trade agreement acts as an important driver of the global trade expansion in the past several decades.
