About this book

Of all the species which have been introduced into fish farming, salmon and trout and, in particular, the Atlantic Salmon most clearly represent the achievements of modern, intensive aquaculture. The successful farming of these species stands testimony 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 reference to the many technical aspects of salmon and trout farming, the varied issues of growth and development, operational and administrative concerns, and disease prevention and treatment.


History and development; Anatomy of salmonids; Water - Life environment; Reproduction - Smolt production; Grow out systems; Feed and feeding; Disease and treatment; Operations; Harvest and fish quality; Reproting and production planning; Anchoring systems.
