Expert Answer:

In fish production, one way of obtaining fish is from natural resources such as seas, rivers, lakes, ponds, estuaries etc. This is called capture fishing. Capture fishing can be done in sea water, fresh water and brackish water.

Aquaculture broadly refers to commercial growing of marine or freshwater animals and aquatic plants. Here useful aquatic plants and animals are cultured by proper utilisation of available waters. Aquaculture includes mariculture and freshwater culture fisheries.

Mariculture is the cultivation of marine organisms, plants and animals, for purposes of human consumption.

In aquaculture and mariculture, both capture fishing and culture fishery is carried out.
