About this book

The relationships between the activities of aquaculture and the environment are of economic importance as well as of scientific interest and, for these reasons, a large international research community has developed over the past decade. In this volume, the resultant research is synthesised and critically reviewed, providing a source of reference to the most important recent developments at research and professional level. The first part of the volume is organised in terms of the major culture types. This is followed by chapters of general relevance to aquaculture.

This book has something for everybody, with excellent coverage of many areas of interest to the academic, administrator, researcher and cultivator - Aquaculture "Topics are addressed in a way that makes them accessible to the non-specialist and relevant to the specialist, and are supported by key references" - Biologist "This very good series of papers from an international panel of experts on the subject provides considerable food for thought." - Fishing Boat World, April 2004
