About this book

Ornamental Fish Farming is a vast compendium on commercially farming and marketing freshwater ornamental fish and provides a huge amount of essential information designed to be useful to and usable by readers at all levels of ability, from hobbyists seeking to undertake their first spawning of ornamental fish, to fully established fish farm operators. Most importantly, it provides the information needed to progress from beginner to large-scale commercial production, notably including ways to avoid the common pitfalls. Some of the information may also be of value to producers of fingerlings of freshwater food fish, especially in procedures related to larval rearing.

Ornamental Fish Farming provides rarely published techniques for breeding tropical fish and goldfish, all in one publication. Information is given in considerable detail, providing both basic and advanced techniques, written in easily understandable language, with numerous step-by-step procedures for various aspects of fish farming. Included is a comprehensive section on quarantining fish and the use of hormone injection to induce spawning. Covers 133 species from 14 major commercial families/groups of fish with concise commercial production techniques for each.
