Aqua is the Latin word for water.
Human consumption of farmed fish has overtaken that of beef. In fact, aquaculture may be the only way to supply mankind with enough protein in the future
In modern usage, an aquamanile (plural aquamanilia or simply aquamaniles) is a ewer orjug-type vessel in the form of one or more animal or human figures. It usually contained water for the washing of hands (aqua + manos) over a basin, which was part of both upper-class meals and the Christian Eucharist. Historically the term was sometimes used for any shape of basin or ewer so used, regardless of shape. Most surviving examples are in metal, typicallycopper alloys (brass or bronze), as pottery versions have rarely survived.
aquaculture(ăk'wə-kŭl'chər, ä'kwə-) also aquiculture (ăk'wĭ-kŭl'chər, ä'kwĭ-)
n. - 水産養殖, 水耕法 (Japanese日本語 )
n. In both senses also called aquafarming.
- The science, art, and business of cultivating marine or freshwater food fish or shellfish, such as oysters, clams, salmon, and trout, under controlled conditions.
A possible solution to the water woes is to move aquaculture well out to sea, specialists say, with new technology that allows for deepwater fish cages served by automatic feeding machines.
