About this book

Although aquaculture is one of the world's fastest growing food sectors, the industry has lagged behind general agriculture in the production of certified organic products. This deficit, primarily due to an absence of consistent standards and accreditation measures, can be alleviated by setting feasible standards, identifying a marketable species to culture, providing growers with the knowledge to accomplish the process, and increasing consumer awareness of the availability of organic aquatic produce.

Authored by Deborah Brister, an internationally recognized authority on the topic, Organic Aquaculture Explores the history of the organic aquaculture movement Explains standards and measures for accreditation. This book identifies key aquatic species suited to organic production, discusses feeds, systems, and production methodologies, analyzes the market for organic aquaculture products, and suggests future research and policy needs for a successful organic aquaculture industry.

Organic Aquaculture shows students, producers, certifiers, and consumers how organic aquaculture can be a viable and profitable alternative to intensive conventional production methods.
