Media reviews

"Practitioners of aquaculture from around the world, and researchers in a range of biological sciences compile the currently available information on the nutrition, feeds, and feeding practices of various fish species of economic importance in regional and/or global aquaculture industries. After an introduction to fish nutrition in general, each of 29 chapters focuses on a particular marine or freshwater species, describing the requirements of proteins and amino acids, energy, lipids and fatty acids, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals; practical diet formulations; and feeding practices."--SciTech Book News
