About this book

Of all of the species which have been introduced into fish farming, salmon and trout and, in particular, the Atlantic Salmon most clearly represent the outstanding achievments of modern, intensive aquaculture. Indeed, the successful farming of these species stands testominy to the results of thorough research and development, major advances in technology, investment, and rigorous marketing. However, the very real dangers of uncontrolled and rapid expansion, unrestrained investment, and market saturation have also been revealed. This new handbook is designed as a benchmark reference to the many technical aspects of salmon and trout farming, the varied issues of growth and development, operational and administrative concerns, disease prevention and treatment and much more. Essential reading for all concerned in the farming of salmonids.
