The purpose of this book is to provide a useful synthesis of the biology and culture of salmonid fishes. The important practices in salmonid culture as well as the theory behind them is described. This volume will be of interest to students, researchers, fisheries biologists and managers as well as practising aquaculturists.

Principles of Salmonid Culture is impressive in size, scope, and detail. Its shortcomings are few and the depth of information is great...
It is unlikely to be superseded by a more comprehensive volume for many years. @source:The Progressive Fish Culture
