The output from world aquaculture, a multi–billion dollar global industry, continues to rise at a very rapid rate and it is now acknowledged that it will take over from fisheries to become the main source of animal and plant products from aquatic environments in the future. Since the first edition of this excellent and successful book was published, the aquaculture industry has continued to expand at a massive rate globally and has seen huge advances across its many and diverse facets. This new edition of Aquaculture: Farming Aquatic Animals and Plants covers all major aspects of the culture of fish, shellfish and algae in freshwater and marine environments. Subject areas covered include principles, water quality, environmental impacts of aquaculture, desert aquaculture, reproduction, life cycles and growth, genetics and stock improvement, nutrition and feed production, diseases, vaccination, post–harvest technology, economics and marketing, and future developments of aquaculture. Separate chapters also cover the culture of algae, carps, salmonids, tilapias, channel catfish, marine and brackish fishes, soft–shelled turtles, marine shrimp, mitten crabs and other decapod crustaceans, bivalves, gastropods, and ornamentals. There is greater coverage of aquaculture in China in this new edition, reflecting China′s importance in the world scene. For many, Aquaculture: Farming Aquatic Animals and Plants is now the book of choice, as a recommended text for students and as a concise reference for those working or entering into the industry. Providing core scientific and commercially useful information, and written by around 30 internationally–known and respected authors, this expanded and fully updated new edition of Aquaculture is a book that is essential reading for all students and professionals studying and working in aquaculture. Fish farmers, hatchery managers and all those supplying the aquaculture industry, including personnel within equipment and feed manufacturing companies, will find a great deal of commercially useful information within this important and now established book. Reviews of the First Edition "This exciting, new and comprehensive book covers all major aspects of the aquaculture of fish, shellfish and algae in freshwater and marine environments including nutrition and feed production." International Aquafeed "Do we really need yet another book about aquaculture? As far as this 502–page work goes, the answer is a resounding ′yes′. This book will definitely find a place in university libraries, in the offices of policy–makers and with economists looking for production and marketing figures. Fish farmers can benefit greatly from the thematic chapters, as well as from those pertaining to the specific plant or animal they are keeping or intending to farm. Also, they may explore new species, using the wealth of information supplied." African Journal of Aquatic Science "Anyone studying the subject or working in any way interested in aquaculture would be well advised to acquire and study this wide–ranging book. One of the real ′bibles′ on the aquaculture industry." Fishing Boat World and also Ausmarine

As aquaculture continues to grow at a rapid pace, understanding the engineering behind aquatic production facilities is of increasing importance for all those working in the industry. Aquaculture engineering requires knowledge of the many general aspects of engineering such as material technology, building design and construction, mechanical engineering and environmental engineering. In this comprehensive book, Odd-Ivar Lekang introduces these principles and demonstrates how such technical knowledge can be applied to aquaculture systems, offering the reader coverage including: • Construction and design of aquatic production facilities • Water transportation and treatment • Different production units • Feed and feeding systems • Instrumentation and monitoring • Fish transportation and grading • Cleaning and waste handling Fish farmers and other personnel involved in the aquaculture industry, suppliers to the fish farming business and designers and manufacturers will find this book an invaluable resource. The book will be an important addition to the shelves of all libraries in universities and research institutions where aquaculture, agriculture and environmental sciences are studied and taught.

This important book draws together, for the first time, a vast wealth of information on all major aspects of the farming of Arctic charr, a highly prized and commercially valuable salmonid. The author, Gavin Johnston who has many years' experience of farming Arctic charr, teaching about and researching the species, has produced a book that is a landmark publication and an essential purchase for all those involved with the species. The book is broadly divided into three sections. The first section covers Arctic charr interactions with humans and the charr's biological requirements for culture. Section two is a practical guide to the art and science of early-rearing Arctic charr; a hands on application of current knowledge in Arctic charr aquaculture. The final section of the book focuses on the commercial production of Arctic charr, providing cutting-edge information for all those involved in the exploitation of this valuable species. Arctic Charr Aquaculture is an essential purchase for anyone involved in, or considering involvement in farming of this species. Farm managers and other personnel in fish farms and experimental aquaculture units, fish and aquatic biologists will find a huge amount of useful data in this book. Libraries in all university departments and research establishments where aquaculture, fisheries and fish biology are studies and taught should have copies of this book on their shelves. This book brings together for the first time the knowledge needed to farm and market Arctic Charr. Part One is an overview of Arctic Charr aquaculture beginning with the history and development of Charr aquaculture, the biological attributes of Arctic Charr, the physical requirements for growth and commercial production requirements. Other chapters are devoted to Charr health, nutrition and feeding. Part Two is a practical guide for the producer operating an Arctic Charr farm either as a vertically integrated operation or as discrete hatcheries and grow out farms. Part Three is devoted to the business of commercially producing Arctic Charr, and although it deals specifically with Charr it also covers many business aspects of farming relevant to any fish species under cold water cultivation. It covers farm business management, the economics and finance of Arctic Charr farming, marketing Charr products and a closing section on how to avoid the pitfalls which others including the author have experienced.
