  • Aquaculture in the Ecosystem

    Aquaculture in the Ecosystem

    The global expansion of aquaculture production and its future role as a food supplier to human society has environmental, social and economic limitations, affecting marine ecosystems and socio-economic scales from local to global. The expansion is closely linked with human health requirements and societal needs for various goods and services provided by marine ecosystems. This book provides a scientific forecast of the development in aquaculture ...

  • Genome Mapping and Genomics in Fishes and Aquatic Animals

    Genome Mapping and Genomics in Fishes and Aquatic Animals

    Mapping of animal genomes has generated huge databases and several new concepts and strategies, which are useful to elucidate origin, evolution and phylogeny. Genetic and physical maps of genomes further provide precise details on chromosomal location, function, expression and regulation of academically and economically important genes. The series Genome Mapping and Genomics in Animals provides comprehensive and up-to-date reviews on genomic ...

  • Handbook on Ingredients for Aquaculture Feeds

    Handbook on Ingredients for Aquaculture Feeds

    Aquaculture - the commercial farming of aquatic organisms in a controlled environment - requires formulated diets composed of various ingredients. This Handbook aims for a better understanding of the food components that affect nutrition and feeding of cultured fishes and crustaceans. Proper utilisation of these foodstuffs can minimise environmental pollution and degradation. An overview of the nutrition of aquatic animals precedes the ...

  • The Algorithmic Beauty of Seaweeds, Sponges and Corals

    The Algorithmic Beauty of Seaweeds, Sponges and Corals

    This book gives a state-of-the-art overview of modeling growth and form of marine sessile organisms - such as stromatolites, algae, and metazoans including stony corals, hydrocorals, octocorals, and sponges -, using large-scale computing techniques, scientific visualization, methods for analyzing 2D and 3D forms, and particle-based modeling techniques. It originates from the workshop on Modeling Growth and Form of Marine Sessile Organisms, held ...

  • The Ecology of the Fish Pond Ecosystem

    The Ecology of the Fish Pond Ecosystem

    An understanding of the ecology of a fish pond is essential for the achievement of steady and high fish production in ponds. For the ecologist, the fish pond is a small laboratory: easy to investigate and responding rapidly to manipulation. For the aquaculturist, the ecology shows the ways and means of interventions ensuring an increase of production. The book deals with the different aspects of natural production within a pond, ...
