About this book

Salmon aquaculture is one of the most rapidly developing industries in temperate ocean waters throughout the world. An international team of experts examine the underlying elements which have contributed to the accelerated growth of this industry and their likely consequences upon and for the industry as a whole, This volume contains a wealth of knowledge and practical information on the major biological, technical and economic aspects of salmon aquaculture through all stages of activity ranging from broodstock to market. This superb reference offers an insight into the industry which will enable all concerned to anticipate and guide future developments in a profitable yet responsible manner. Pitched at a level suitable to both the studying and professional aquaculturalist and fish scientist, Salmon Aquaculture is the collaborative effort of three specialists with a common interest who bring their diverse perspectives to this important subject. Knut Heen has made detailed studies of the economic aspects of salmon farming, Robert Monahan has extensively reviewed the geographical distribution of various facets of the industry, and Fred Utter, during a long and successful career, has specialised in researching the biological problems which confront the salmon aquaculture industry. Introductory chapters provide an overview of salmon aquaculture, whilst subsequent chapters in turn cover: The distribution of salmon aquaculture; Technology; Nutrition, diet formulation and feeding practices; Environmental considerations; Salmon disease; Breeding and selection; Regulations; Cost structure and profitability; Farm management; Marketing.
