This book elucidates the vital but often neglected relationship between bottom soil and water quality. An understanding of this important connection is essential for maintaining water quality within optimum ranges for shrimp and fish. It is the first volume to provide information on topics from soil science essential to pond aquaculture. The impact of soil-water interactions on water quality is examined, and the volume provides important methods for enhancing the soil conditions in ponds. Detailed chapters include coverage of *soils in pond aquaculture *physical, chemical, and mineralogical properties of soil *soil nutrients *the exchange of dissolved substances between soil and water *soil organic matter, anaerobic respiration, and oxidation-reduction *sediment soil *relationships to aquatic animal production *pond bottom management and soil analyses. Bottom Soils, Sediment, and Pond Aquaculture gives students and professionals in aquaculture insight into the principles of soil science which most affect pond management and provides them with an essential and current reference.
