Abstract/Summary Economics plays an important role in the survival and development of aquaculture. Technical ability is a precondition for the aquaculture of a given species, but this will fail to develop and survive (in any meaningful sense) if it is commercially uneconomic. Economic failure of an aquaculture project may stem from production, technical or cost problems, or from marketing problems (Fig. 2.1). Therefore, those who want to have a commercially successful aquaculture enterprise must pay considerable attention to economics, including marketing issues. Furthermore, aquaculture's economic value often needs to be assessed taking into account its social or community-wide impacts. [extract]
