About this book

This is the ninth volume of ten in The Natural History of the Crustacea Series. The chapters in this volume synthesize the diverse topics in fisheries and aquaculture. In the first part of the book, chapters explore worldwide crustacean fisheries. This section comes to a conclusion with two chapters on harvested crustaceans that are usually not within the focus of the mainstream fisheries research, possibly because they are caught by local fishing communities in small-scale operations and sold locally as subsistence activity. In the second part of the book, the authors explore the variety of cultured crustacean species, like shrimps, prawns, lobsters, and crabs. Chapters in the third part of the volume focus on important challenges and opportunities, including diseases and parasitism, the use of crustacean as bioindicators, and their role in biotechnology.

Biography

Gustavo Lovrich is a marine biologist with interests in crab biology and benthic ecology, mainly in the sub-Antarctic environments. He studies the biological bases for the management of king crab fisheries in the southern tip of South America and participates in a population subsidy program to improve the king crab population. He has been coordinating the scientific research in the offshore marine protected areas of Argentina for the last five years.

Martin Thiel is a marine biologist with a strong interest in animal behaviour and natural history. Throughout the past 25 years, he has conducted studies on crustacean behaviour ranging from evolution of parental care behaviours to mating interactions and anti-predator behaviours. He is also interested in dispersal ecology and biogeography and in promoting the participation of citizen scientists in marine research (www.cientificosdelabasura.cl).
