Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Based on the author's previous work, Principles of Warmwater Aquaculture, this text updates and expands upon the basic principles of aquaculture. Encompasses a wider diversity of aquatic animals including coldwater fishes. Focuses on the practical aspects of water quality, feeding and nutrition, reproduction, breeding, diseases and operations. Deals with the environmental, social and economic aspects of aquaculture. Many of the examples feature species of both sport and commercial interest.
Book News Annotation:
A text that presents the underlying principles of aquaculture and provides examples that underscore the principles and demonstrate the variability that exists among species of culture organisms. It extends the scope of Stickney's Principles of Warmwater Aquaculture (Wiley, 1979) to encompass a wider variety of aquatic animals, including such coldwater fishes as trout and salmon. The emphasis is on species being reared around the world by commercial aquaculturists.
