About this book

This is the second edition of the Directory of Crocodilian Farming Operations, first published in 1985. The first edition attempted to list all commercial farms, and was primarily intended as a conservation tool to assist government agencies in identifying legal sources of crocodilian skins, and wildlife managers in developing farming projects to benefit the conservation of the wild resource. The farming of crocodilians has increased substantially since 1985, and the need for up-to-date information on existing farms has led to this revised edition. Very little technical literature is available on crocodilian farming, and to try and meet the demand for more information and advice, the second edition provides a brief technical introduction designed to alert prospective farmers to the factors which should be taken into account before embarking on such a venture.
