    Fish farming (i.e. the cultivation of fish in controlled conditions) has developed rapidly over the last 20 years in response to growing shortages of wild fish relative to prevailing markets. The industry has been dominated by the salmon sector which in turn has been dominated by Norway, which accounts for about two thirds of international production. However, the strong nature of the market for fanned salmon (at least until recently) has drawn many other countries, including Ireland, into the industry.
