About this book
Topics covered in this book are as diverse as feeding, ecology of fish in their natural habitat, feeding behaviour, digestive anatomy, biochemistry and physiology of different fish species at different life stages, the impact of diet on gastro-intestinal development and health, nutrition and disease resistance, and modeling conversion of food or feed inputs into biomass.
