About this book

This reference provides aquaculturists with the fundamentals of hydrology, water supply and water supply structures for pond fish culture. The authors discuss the properties of water that affect behaviour in the hydraulic cycle and in water supply systems; rainfall (including measurement, analysis, data and patterns); evaporation; runoff (including interception, infiltration, storage, etc); water budget methodology; water conservation; water quality requirements for ponds; pond design and construction; water measurement; open channel flow; pipe flow; groundwater and wells; and pumps. This is an essential reference for extension and commercial aquaculturists, engineers, aquaculture researchers and consultants. This book should be of interest to advanced undergraduate and graduate students in fisheries and aquaculture, aquaculturists, pond owners, pond managers, extension agents, government fisheries, aquaculture workers, catfish and shrimp farmers.
