Summary

The output from world aquaculture, a multi-billion dollar global industry, continues to rise at a very rapid rate and it is now acknowledged that it will take over from fisheries to become the main source of animal and plant products from aquatic environments in the future. Since the first edition of this excellent and successful book was published, the aquaculture industry has continued to expand at a massive rate globally and has seen huge advances across its many and diverse facets.

This new edition of Aquaculture covers all major aspects of the culture of fish, shellfish and algae in freshwater and marine environments. Subject areas covered include water quality and environmental impacts of aquaculture, desert aquaculture, reproduction, life cycles and growth, genetics and stock improvement, nutrition and feed production, diseases, post-harvest technology and processing, economics and marketing. Separate chapters also cover the culture of algae, carps, salmonids, tilapias, channel catfish, barramundi, marine shrimp, freshwater crayfish and prawns, bivalves and marine gastropods.

For many, Aquaculture- Farming Aquatic Animals and Plants is now the book of choice, as a recommended text for students and as a concise reference for those working or entering into the industry.
