  • Bottom Soils, Sediment, and Pond Aquaculture

    Bottom Soils, Sediment, and Pond Aquaculture

    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 ...

  • Diversity and Function in Mangrove Ecosystems

    Diversity and Function in Mangrove Ecosystems

    Mangroves are salt-adapted plants that are found along many of the world's tropical and sub-tropical coastlines. Regrettably, these plants are being lost due to over-exploitation, pollution, conversion to agriculture and aquaculture and other causes. This is having important consequences for local human populations that traditionally rely on this resource, and is upsetting the fine balance needed to maintain this highly productive ...

  • Ecology of Teleost Fishes

    Ecology of Teleost Fishes

    Teleost fishes account for nearly half of all known vertebrate species. They have representatives in virtually all aquatic systems and an enormous variety in the ways they live. Moreover, teleost fishes support subsistence and commercial fisheries and aquaculture systems throughout the world. The second edition of this highly respected book retains the aims and structure of the first edition, emphasizing the responses of individual fish ...

  • Environmental Biology of Fishes

    Environmental Biology of Fishes

    Provides a thorough introduction to the biology of fishes, covering basic diversity, biology and physiology. Detailed coverage of environmental aspects relating to fish biology is a key feature of this book which will be of great use to students and individuals in fish biology, fisheries, aquaculture and environmental sciences.

  • Feed Management In Intensive Aquaculture

    Feed Management In Intensive Aquaculture

    This book is a guide to the management and use of formulated feeds in semi-intensive and intensive fish and shrimp culture. Feeds represent the major variable operating costs in intensive aquaculture, and optimizing their use represents an opportunity for many farmers to increase or maintain the profitability of their enterprise. Fish farmers have an ever widening range of feed types and feeding methods from which to choose, and must ...

  • Live Food in Aquaculture

    Live Food in Aquaculture

    This proceedings volume includes selected papers presented at the international symposium 'Live Food Organisms in Marine Larviculture' held in Nagasaki, Japan, September 1-4 1996. This international symposium focused on live food organisms for the larval rearing of marine animals. Recent achievements in the fundamental biology (such as physiology, ecology, taxonomy, life cycle and nutrition) of live planktonic animals used as feed in ...

  • Living Marine Resources

    Living Marine Resources

    Living Marine Resources provides a thorough, up-to-date introduction to all aspects of fisheries science. This clearly written text offers insight into a topic of increasing importance--the wise utilization and management of sea fisheries to maximize production without exceeding their carrying capacity.

  • 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, ...
