About this book

As salmonids have been reared for more than a century in many countries, one might expect that principles are well established and provide a solid foundation for salmonid aquaculture. Indeed, some of the methods used today in salmonid rearing are nearly identical to those employed one hundred years ago. Areas of salmonid research today include nutrition, smolt and stress physiology, genetics and biotechnology. The purpose of this book is to provide a useful synthesis of the biology and culture of salmonid fishes. The important practices in salmonid culture as well as the theory behind them is described. This volume will be of interest to students, researchers, fisheries biologists and managers as well as practising aquaculturists.

R.R. Stickney ...One of the many striking things about the book is the thoroughness of the introduction, which provides a thoughtful synopsis of the book and integrates the information on various topics by indicating the chapters in which each topic is discussed... Principles of Salmonid Culture is impressive in size, scope, and detail. Its shortcomings are few and the depth of information is great... It is unlikely to be superseded by a more comprehensive volume for many years. The Progressive Fish Culture
