Caption: Animation of fish in a commercial fish farm. This is a method of cultivating fish until they reach a useful size, after which they are harvested. A large net or cage is suspended from floats, enclosing the fish. The fish ar protected from predators, and can be fed from the surface. Their waste is carried away by currents. The nets are often made with copper alloys, as copper has antimicrobial properties, killing organisms that can harm the fish. In addition, fouling organisms cannot grow on copper alloys, which aids maintenance. This technique is commonly used to raise salmon, sea trout and sea bass.
