Aquaculture: biology and ecology of cultured species edited by Gilbert Barnabe 1994 403pp ISBN 0 13 482324 9 (Hbk) ISBN 0 13 482316 8 (Pbk) Ellis Horwood Ltd, Campus 400, Maylands Avenue, Hemel Hempstead, Herts HP2 7EZ, UK
The term aquaculture is defined es 'the art of increasing and rearing aquatic animals and plants'. It covers activities whose main object is the production of fresh-water, brackish and marine species by man under controlled or semi-controlled conditions. Aquaculture: biology and ecology of cultured species bridges the gap between research data and aquaculture techniques, and covers problems arising in aquaculture production, such as the filtering of molluscs. It also introduces modern aspects of oceanography that are important for understanding the production process. The book starts with a section on the production of living material and matter in the aquatic environment. It then goes on to explore in detail the biological basis of mollusc, crustacean and fish cultures and the reproduction and nutrition of bivalve molluscs. Also discussed are the intensive and extensive aquaculture producing processes in fresh and marine waters, and finally the pathology of reared animals. The book is especially orientated toward the student.
