  • Environmental Effects of Marine Finfish Aquaculture

    Environmental Effects of Marine Finfish Aquaculture

    Environmental risks associated with large-scale marine finfish cage aquaculture have led to claims that the long-term sustainability of the industry is in doubt. Methods and models currently used to measure near and far-field environmental effects of finfish mariculture and to assess their implications for management are presented in 20 chapters arranged in four sections (Eutrophication, Sedimentation and Benthic Impacts, Changes in Trophic ...

  • The Fish Oocyte

    The Fish Oocyte

    This book addresses the growing needs in deciphering the biological processes associated with fish reproduction, in view of the growth of aquaculture and the dwindling natural stocks of commercially important fish. It presents a comprehensive overview on egg production in fish, from the standpoint of the oocyte. With this view in mind, the book includes chapters on oocyte development (oogenesis), hormonal regulation and hormone receptors, ...

  • The Fish Production Potential of the Baltic Sea

    The Fish Production Potential of the Baltic Sea

    It presents a new approach to set fish quota based on holistic ecosystem modeling (the CoastWeb-model) and also a plan to optimize a sustainable management of the Baltic Sea including a cost-benefit analysis. This plan accounts for the production of prey and predatory fish under different environmental conditions, professional fishing, recreational fishing and fish cage farm production plus an analysis of associated economic values. Several ...

  • 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. Adoption of the approaches presented will improve the conservation and management of the many world fisheries that are suffering ...

  • Marine Fish Culture

    Marine Fish Culture

    With the depletion of wild fish stocks by factors such as overfishing, habitat degradation, pollution, and red tides, the pressures and incentives for commercial farming of marine food and aquarium fish have increased dramatically. Concurrent with that trend has been an increase in the experimental use of live marine fish in various basic and applied sciences, for example, in developmental, ecological, and toxicological research. Marine ...
