Media reviews
The contents of this well thought-out and presented book provide much food for thought for those likely to be investiging in managing or legislating about aquaculture in the years to come... particularly valuable for the planners and thinkers among us. Professional Fisherman, 2003. "... required reading for anyone interested in producing aquatic organisms in an environmentally responsible manner; which means it should be read by everyone involved in aquaculture." Robert R Stickney, National Shellfisheries Association, Quarterly Newsletter, 2003. "This book will get you to thinking about sustainable aquaculture with a can-do outlook. I recommend the book highly." Dr James W Avault Jr. Aquaculture Magazine, 2002.
