In Sweden aquaculture has had two different developments: small-scale production run by a single family and large-scale cultures in industrial plants. The small-scale cultures comprise the production of rainbow trout and salmon in net cages, blue mussels on ropes, and European crayfish and signal crayfish in ponds. The large-scale productions consist mainly of eel, flatfish, and giant river prawn produced in heated effluents of nuclear power plants and the chemical industry. Most fish farmers concentrate on producing fish of more than 2kg for which the best market prices are obtained. Production figures and culture techniques for the various species are given in the paper. The decreasing Swedish imports of European crayfish from Turkey, has generated a new promising pond-culture technique in Sweden. Although aquaculture activities are strictly regulated, the culture of rainbow trout, eel, and crayfish looks promising.
