This third edition of Fish Nutrition is a comprehensive treatise on nutrient requirements and metabolism in major species of fish used in aquaculture or scientific experiments. It covers nutrients required and used in cold water, warm water, fresh water, and marine species for growth and reproduction. It also highlights basic physiology and biochemistry of the nutrients and applications of these principles to scientific and practical diet formulations and to manufacturing techniques for major species used worldwide in aquaculture.
Nutrient requirements for dietary formulations for fish farming
Comparative nutritional requirements of different species
Fish as unique animals for certain metabolic pathways

Ronald Hardy is a Distinguished Professor Emeritus in the Department of Animal and Veterinary Sciences and past Director of the Aquaculture Research Institute at the University of Idaho, Moscow. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Washington in Fisheries, conducting his dissertation on the effects of dietary protein and pyridoxine levels on growth and disease resistance of Chinook salmon. He is a member of the American Institute of Nutrition and the World Aquaculture Society, serving as the Vice President of the latter from 2001 to 2003. In addition to co-editing the previous edition of Fish Nutrition, Dr.Hardy has authored over 50 books and book chapters, and over 300 scientific papers, proceedings and popular articles on fish feed and fish nutrition. He served as chair of the committee that produced the 2011 National Research Council (NRC) bulletin Nutrient Requirements of Fish and Shrimp.

"...the breadth and depth of this text clearly make this an important publication and timely reference for researchers in the fields of fish nutritional physiology and aquaculture. ...interesting for everybody who is willing to accept that the nutritional physiology of fishes is every bit as interesting an human nutritional physiology."
