Description

Fish Nutrition, Fourth Edition is an up-to-date, authoritative presentation of all key elements of the nutrition of fish and crustaceans. As aquaculture is rapidly expanding, more than 200 herbivorous and carnivorous species occupy a diverse range of ecological niches, and have therefore evolved to utilize a wide array of food sources. This new edition highlights these differences and covers the complexity and challenges associated with fish nutrition, addressing nutrient requirements to produce high-quality, healthful and sustainable resources, the essential nutrients for fish species, including proteins and amino acids, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids, a feed quality assessment, and fish pathology. Led by a team of international experts, this edition provides readers with new information on the use of high-throughput technologies in fish nutrition research, the role of feeds on the community structure of the microbiome, and advances in essential nutrient requirements.

Key Features

  • Features expansive updates to the previous edition, including a new chapter dedicated to diet analysis and evaluation
  • Addresses the roles of fish nutrition and feeds on sustainability and the environmental impacts of aquaculture
  • Covers basic nutritional biochemistry and applied nutritional topics

Readership

Researchers and professionals in ichthyology, aquaculture, general fish studies; graduate students in fish nutrition
