EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Aquaculture and fisheries science are two distinct yet interrelated fields of study. Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic animals such as fishes, molluscs, algae and aquatic plants. Fisheries science is concerned with the management of fisheries by integrating the principles of oceanography, marine biology, ecology, limnology, etc. A common concern in both these fields is the sustainable exploitation of aquatic organisms in order to prevent extinction. This book aims to shed light on some of the unexplored aspects of aquaculture and fisheries science. It strives to provide significant in-depth knowledge of these disciplines and develop a comprehensive understanding. This book is appropriate for students seeking detailed information in this area as well as for experts.

Release Date: 2002
Pages: 358
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Aquaculture for both finfish and shellfish is expanding rapidly throughout the world. It is regarded as having the potential to provide a valuable source of protein in less developed countries and to be integrated into the farming systems and livelihoods of the rural poor. This book addresses key issues in aquaculture and rural development, with case studies drawn from several countries in South and South-East Asia. Papers included cover topics ranging from production and technical issues (such as pond culture and rice field fisheries) to social aspects and research and development methodology. The book has been developed from a meeting of the Asian Fisheries Society. It is aimed at all concerned with aquaculture and rural development.

Sea Urchins
Author: John M. Lawrence
Publisher: Academic Press
Release Date: 2013-05-31
Pages: 550
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This fully revised and expanded edition of Sea Urchins provides a wide-ranging understanding of the biology and ecology of this key component of the world's oceans. Coverage includes reproduction, metabolism, endocrinology, larval ecology, growth, digestion, carotenoids, disease and nutrition. Other chapters consider the ecology of individual species that are of major importance ecologically and economically, including species from Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Europe, North America, South America and Africa. In addition, six new contributions in areas such as immunology, digestive systems and community ecology inform readers on key recent developments and insights from the literature. Sea urchins are ecologically important and often greatly affect marine communities. Because they have an excellent fossil record, they are also of interest to paleontologists. Research on sea urchins has increased in recent years, stimulated first by recognition of their ecological importance and subsequently their economic importance. Scientists around the world are actively investigating their potential for aquaculture and fisheries, and their value as model systems for investigations in developmental biology continues to increase. Continues the series "Developments in Aquaculture and Fisheries Science" with a newly revised volume Collects and synthesizes the state of knowledge of sea urchin biology and ecology Expanded from previous edition to include non-edible species, providing the needed basis for broader evolutionary understanding of sea urchins

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Introduction to the General Principles of Aquaculture provides novice aquaculturists with an overview of the aquaculture industry so you may proceed successfully in academic studies or commercial ventures. The authors furnish you with insight into the history and development of aquaculture and cover the subjects of natural production versus aquaculture, the aquatic environment, energy requirements of and relationships in aquaculture systems, important components of aquaculture systems, selection of aquaculture species, major cultured species and their distribution, global aquaculture production, a comparison of agriculture and aquaculture, and those factors promoting and constraining aquaculture. The book is liberally illustrated so that students and laymen are able to visualize systems and species. Furthermore, tables and figures are used throughout to emphasize important points, facts, and methods. As an introductory text, it emphasizes several aspects of aquaculture that must be understood by those new to the industry. These aspects include water quality, species of importance around the world, and current and projected aquaculture production on a global basis. The important components of any aquaculture system are also covered in some detail--biological factors, technical-biological factors, technical-economic factors, production cost factors, socioeconomic factors, and species selection factors. Laypersons considering aquaculture as an investment and students considering aquaculture as a career, but who have no real background in agriculture and fisheries sciences,will find this book to be a key information source. Introduction to the General Principles of Aquaculture is written with the global market in mind and instructors will find it to be a useful introductory text at the undergraduate level.

Advances In Aquaculture Hatchery Technology
Author: Geoff Allan
Publisher: Elsevier
Release Date: 2013-02-19
Pages: 680
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Aquaculture is the fastest-growing food production sector in the world. With demand for seafood increasing at astonishing rates, the optimization of production methods is vital. One of the primary restrictions to continued growth is the supply of juveniles from hatcheries. Addressing these constraints, Advances in aquaculture hatchery technology provides a comprehensive, systematic guide to the use of current and emerging technologies in enhancing hatchery production. Part one reviews reproduction and larval rearing. Aquaculture hatchery water supply and treatment systems, principles of finfish broodstock management, genome preservation, and varied aspects of nutrition and feeding are discussed in addition to larval health management and microbial management for bacterial pathogen control. Closing the life-cycle and overcoming challenges in hatchery production for selected invertebrate species are the focus of part two, and advances in hatchery technology for spiny lobsters, shrimp, blue mussel, sea cucumbers and cephalopods are all discussed. Part three concentrates on challenges and successes in closing the life-cycle and hatchery production for selected fish species, including tuna, striped catfish, meagre, and yellowtail kingfish. Finally, part four explores aquaculture hatcheries for conservation and education. With its distinguished editors and international team of expert contributors, Advances in aquaculture hatchery technology is an authoritative review of the field for hatchery operators, scientists, marine conservators and educators. Provides a comprehensive guide to the use of technologies in enhancing hatchery production Examines reproduction and larval rearing, including genetic improvement and microdiets Discusses challenges in hatchery production of specific species

Protozoan Parasites Of Fishes
Author: J. Lom
Publisher: Elsevier Science Limited
Release Date: 1992-11-20
Pages: 315
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Based on twenty years of research experience, this unique, large format volume presents an up-to-date treatment of the biology, relation to the host, taxonomy and diagnostic features of protozoan parasites infecting fishes. By presenting definitions of all 151 genera, keys for the determination of all main groups of fish protozoa, copious illustrations and half-tone plates, and details on the technique of investigation, the book makes it possible to determine all protozoan parasites of fishes down to generic level. In each genus, all important pathogenic species are dealt with, special attention being paid to their pathogenic action, and these are well documented by photomicrographs. A wide range of information is given on host-parasite relations, including data on pathogenicity of separate groups and species; and a host-parasite checklist enables a quick orientation on protozoa that may be encountered in one hundred economically important fish species. In addition to the to the true protozoan phyla, an appendix lists a few organisms of uncertain position with alleged or possible relation to protozoa; altogether, 561 species are described. This book is the first of its kind and should be invaluable reading for all fish parasitologists, fisheries biologists, aquaculturists and all others interested in protozoan parasites of fishes.
