About this book

Providing an overview of available techniques for fish farmers and researchers, Methods in Reproductive Aquaculture addresses ways to improve depleted stocks of endangered fish and other species.

Written by international experts, this practical guide provides a highly readable review of gamete extraction, sperm collection, and egg stripping in different species. It then focuses on sperm and egg quality characteristics before presenting information on the materials and facilities required for gamete preparation and freeze-thawing procedures. It includes the first practical guidance on cryopreservation as a technique for gamete management. A final section reviews important aspects of gamete handling, before, during, and after fertilization and incubation.
