Production of Aquatic Animals: Fishes book cover

Production of Aquatic Animals: Fishes

World Animal Science Series

This is a companion volume to World Animal Science C4, The Production of Aquatic Animals (Crustaceans, Molluscs, Amphibians and Reptiles). It describes the production of fishes, particularly the most important species or species groups farmed in both marine and fresh waters throughout the world. The volume emphasizes all the systems and practices currently used for production, aspects which are unusual or constrain further development, and key areas of present research.

Reviews

  • Excellent review of global fish culture.
    Fisheries, 1995


    For all instances dealing with the support of aquaculture, technical, biological and economical, the book is certainly a must.
    Aquaculture, 1996
    ...should find widespread use as a reference for those needing a summary of the culture procedures used in rearing a variety of fish species.
    The Progressive Fish-Culturist, 1996
    ...it should have a place in any library that has an interest not only in fish and/or fish culture but in any form of animal production.
    Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology, 1995
