Summary: Crustacean Farming investigates all cultivated crustaceans of commercial significance -- shrimp, prawns, crayfish, lobsters, crabs, and spiny lobsters -- and examines the criteria by which both the feasibility and desirability of farming proposals are assessed. The characteristics and production methods of farmed and candidate crustacean species are described in detail to enable readers to distinguish profitable opportunities from potential losers. The text covers bloodstock acquisit moreion and management, the operation of hatcheries, nurseries and on-growing units, and key aspects of processing and marketing. The authors compare examples of investment and operating costs of the different culture options and present an analysis of current trends in world crustacean markets to assist in economic and financial appraisal. To promote awareness of the wider implications of global developments, special consideration is also given to the social and environmental impact of crustacean farming within the economics of developing nations. less
