G. bivalve and seaweed culture. Seaweed culture differs, of course, from animal culture in terms of food requirements, but the seaweeds are dependent on the culture environment for inorganic nutrients. Apart from seaweeds and bivalves, a considerable amount of extensive aquaculture is of low-value fish, such as carps and tilapia. This is possible because of the low costs of production associated with extensive culture. Furthermore, the production statistics per country and species show that this is the major source of aquaculture production in the world.
