CSPCWG have, in their work on S-4, made some changes relating to Aquaculture which they define as: "The cultivation of fish and marine vegetation."

This is not currently defined in S-32 and they have asked us to consider its inclusion. They have provided the results of several definitions found on the internet.

Personally I think we should follow what is in S-4, unless of course there is a strong reason not to do so. Certainly anything we adopt should not go against what is in S-4.

I more or less agree with the S-4 definition, although I must point out the U.S. does deal with fresh water and aquatic would be more inclusive/descriptive.  However, this is a small point and I wouldn't object to the definition as is.

What about the shellfish?

I would tend to agree with Jerry Mill slight reservation, and whilst keeping the S-4 concision, would prefer a more inclusive definition such as:

The cultivation of aquatic animals and vegetation.

I agree the definition should be slightly expanded; however I would suggest 'marine species' instead of 'aquatic animals' and a definition to read:   The cultivation of marine species and vegetation.

This looks like a nice, short compromise. Let's go for

"The cultivation of marine species and vegetation".

Which could be translated into French as:

"élevage d'espèces animales et production de végétaux marins".

FYI, the French official reference (Dictionaire de l'Académie Française) specifies: AQUICULTURE (first time I saw this spelling!): Aménagement des eaux en vue de l'élevage d'animaux aquatiques ou de la production d'algues et d'autres végétaux.

The word "species" is a general term used in biology to define groups of animals and plants.  The suggested revised definition therefore "doubles up" by using the word "species" and then using a sub-classification of species "vegetation".  I would therefore suggest one of the following be adopted, based on the discussions:

"The cultivation of marine species"; or

"The cultivation of marine fauna and flora".

I am ambivalent as to whether the word "aquatic" should be substituted for "marine".

I have retained your second definition in the latest version of the HDWG report to HSSC5:

"The cultivation of marine fauna and flora".

'Aquaculture' is a good example of a word that does not strictly belong to our area of expertise, but needs to figure in the HD in a very brief form.

FYI, the Aquaculture Steering Committee of the Fisheries Department of FAO has defined aquaculture in the following terms:
"Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organisms, including fish, molluscs, crustaceans and aquatic plants. Farming implies some form of intervention in the rearing process to enhance production, such as regular stocking, feeding, protection from predators, etc. Farming also implies individual or corporate ownership of the stock being cultivated. For statistical purposes, aquatic organisms which are harvested by an individual or corporate body which has owned them throughout their rearing period contribute to aquaculture, while aquatic organisms which are exploitable by the public as a common property resource, with or without appropriate licences, are the harvest of fisheries."
