About this book

This definitive book on The Shrimp is the result of the contributions of 67 international authors. It contains a wealth of scientific knowledge which usually can only he located in a fragmented manner in specialised journals or was presented in industry conferences that rarely reaches a wide audience. It brings together the worlds of aquaculture science and industry production. The Shrimp Book includes descriptions of farming practices and the actual implementation of new technologies

The content is structured into six parts: shrimp farming, the shrimp as an animal, current farming practices, optimisation of feeds, biosecurity and post harvest.

lt is addressed to shrimp producers and service providers, researchers and students. It compiles, in one single volume, the full depth of the academic perspective together with the most recent developments in field practice.

The Shrimp Book illustrates the important interaction between the academic and industry worlds. lt facilitates access to information, knowledge and new ideas as well as bringing in material for debate and discussion.
