About this book

This book is a key reference on culture methods, offering both practical applications and essential biological information. Throughout the text, the culture and stock enhancement issues are treated simultaneously, integrating these two perspectives. With chapters on disease diagnosis and treatment, culture methods for a number of specific species, and the use of flatfish as model organisms in laboratory settings, "Practical Flatfish Culture and Stock Enhancement" comprehensively covers the subject of culture and stock enhancement.

In summary, the book is timely, well organized, clearly written, full of state-of-the-art information, and effectively links flatfish culture and stock enhancement. Thus, it should be a valuable resource for academics and industrial practitioners alike. (Reviews in Fisheries Science, 22 June 2011)
