Scallops: Biology, Ecology, Aquaculture and Fisheries, Third Edition, continues its history as the definitive resource on scallops, covering all facets of scallop biology, including anatomy, taxonomy, physiology, ecology, larval biology, and neurobiology.
More than thirty extensive chapters explore both fisheries and aquaculture for all species of scallops in all countries where they are fished or cultured.
This treatise has been updated to include the most recent advances in research and the newest developments within the industry. As aquaculture remains one of the fastest-growing animal food-producing sectors, this reference becomes even more vital. It has all the available information on scallops needed to equip researchers to deal with the unique global issues in the field.
- Offers 30 detailed chapters on the development and ecology of scallops
- Provides chapters on various cultures of scallops in China, Japan, Scandinavia, Europe, Eastern North America, and Western North America
- Includes details of scallop reproduction, nervous system, and behavior, genetics, diseases, parasites, and much more
- Completely updated edition with valuable information on one of the most widely distributed shellfish in the world
