About this book

The History of Aquaculture is a comprehensive history of the practices and technologies used in captive fish production from its small scale prehistoric roots through to the large-scale industrialized practices of today. Thirteen chapters take readers chronologically through the evolution of this important discipline. Chapters cover key periods of advancement and trace changes in the field from subsistence fish farming in the middle ages through the efforts to build global capacity for fish production to meet the needs of the world's ever growing population.
