929044942X / 9789290449423 New
 
2014. 30cm. Pp.300. Softbound.

The value of the Aquatic Code is twofold: firstly, the sanitary measures recommended are the result of consensus among the Veterinary Authorities of OIE Members, and secondly, it constitutes a reference within the WTO SPS Agreement as an international standard for animal health and zoonoses of aquatic animals, as well as a key standard for the prevention and control of aquatic animal diseases.

The 2014 Aquatic Code is arranged in sections as follows: Section 1 includes chapters on notification of OIE listed diseases, criteria for listing aquatic animal diseases, OIE listed diseases and surveillance; Section 2 includes chapters on import risk analysis; Section 3 includes chapters on the quality of aquatic animal health services; Section 4 includes chapters on general recommendations for disease prevention and control; Section 5 includes chapters focused on topics relating to trade measures, import and export procedures and certification; Section 6 includes chapters on the control of hazards in aquatic animal feed and responsible and prudent use of antimicrobial agents in aquatic animals; Section 7 includes chapters on welfare of farmed fish during transport and killing; Sections 8 to 11 include disease specific chapters for OIE listed diseases of amphibians, crustaceans, molluscs and fish, and are designed to prevent the disease in question being introduced into the importing country, taking into account the nature of the commodity and the aquatic animal health status of the exporting country. Essential reference.

30cm. Pp.528. 300 colour photos and figures, glossary, index. Hardbound.

Ornamental Fish Farming is a vast compendium on commercially farming and marketing freshwater ornamental fish and provides a huge amount of essential information designed to be useful to and usable by readers at all levels of ability, from hobbyists seeking to undertake their first spawning of ornamental fish, to fully established fish farm operators. Most importantly, it provides the information needed to progress from beginner to large-scale commercial production, notably including ways to avoid the common pitfalls. Some of the information may also be of value to producers of fingerlings of freshwater food fish, especially in procedures related to larval rearing.

The book provides rarely published techniques for breeding tropical fish and goldfish, all in one publication. Information is given in considerable detail, providing both basic and advanced techniques, written in easily understandable language, with numerous step-by-step procedures for various aspects of fish farming. Included is a comprehensive section on quarantining fish and the use of hormone injection to induce spawning.

Covers 133 species from 14 major commercial families/groups of fish with concise commercial production techniques for each.

9789400748835 New
 
2012. 26cm. Pp.xxxiii, 652. 48 photos & figures (31 in colour). Hardbound.

This completely updated fifth edition of Bacterial Fish Pathogens is a comprehensive discussion of the biological aspects of the bacteria which cause disease in farmed and wild fish. Since the 4th edition was published in 2007, there has been an upturn in the application of molecular approaches to taxonomy, diagnosis and vaccine development. New pathogens, e.g. Aeromonas schubertii, have been described. Also, there has been the emergence of diseases caused by bacteria which have not been cultured, and which have been equated with new taxa, i.e. ‘Candidatus’. Consideration is given to all the bacterial fish pathogens, including primary pathogens and opportunists.

Contents : 1. Introduction.- 2 Gram-positive bacteria (anaerobes and lactic acid bacteria’).- 3. Aerobic Gram-positive rods and cocci.- 4. Aeromonadaceae representatives (motile aeromonads).- 5. Aeromonadaceae representative (Aeromonas salmonicida).- 6. Enterobacteriaceae representatives.- 7. Flavobacteriaceae representatives.- 8. Francisellaceae representatives.- 9.

Sea urchins and sea cucumbers are highly sought after delicacies growing in popularity globally. The demand for these species is rapidly outpacing natural stocks, and researchers and seafood industry personnel are now looking towards aquaculture as a means of providing a sustainable supply. Echinoderm Aquaculture is a very practical reference on the basic biology and current culture practices for a wide range of geographically diverse echinoderm species.

This textbook covers the basic ecology and biology of sea urchins and sea cucumbers as well as the breadth of uses of these organisms as a source of food and bioactive compounds. Subsequent chapters delineate the specific species of interest in various geographic regions from around the world and provide a comprehensive coverage of aquaculture practices.

Millions of people are moving from rural areas to coastal cities. Meeting the basic human needs for food proteins in the future will be a difficult challenge. Fishery products are the world's most important source of animal protein, which has led to a doubling of the demand for fish since the 1950s. As we cannot expect to catch more fish from the sea, we must turn to farming the waters, not just fishing them. The new challenge for planners now is to accelerate aquaculture development and to plan for new production, making urban areas of production, particularly using recycled urban wastewater.

Urban Aquaculture includes papers from authors in the USA, Europe and Asia that review these developing issues from the perspective of both developed and developing nations.

1118394429 / 9781118394427 New
 
2015. 26cm. Pp.888. Colour photos, figures, tables. Hardbound.

Freshwater Fisheries Ecology is truly a landmark publication, containing contributions from over 100 experts and defines what we have globally, what we are going to lose and have to mitigate for, and what, given the right tools, we can save. To estimate potential production, the dynamics of freshwater ecosystems (rivers, lakes and estuaries) need to be understood. These dynamics are diverse as are the earth's freshwater fisheries resources (from boreal to tropical regions), and these influence how fisheries are both utilized and abused.

Three main types of fisheries are described within the book: artisanal, commercial and recreational, and the tools which have evolved for fisheries governance and management, including assessment methods, are described.

This book also covers in detail fisheries development, providing information on improving fisheries through environmental and habitat evaluation, enhancement and rehabilitation, aquaculture, genetically modified fishes and sustainability, and thoroughly reviews the negative impacts on fisheries including excessive harvesting, climate change, toxicology, impoundments, barriers and abstractions, non-native species and eutrophication. Finally, key areas of future research are outlined.

Inland fisheries are vital for the livelihoods and food resources of humans worldwide but their importance is underestimated, probably because large numbers of small, local operators are involved.

This book describes, in detail, the principles and practice of tilapia culture. All aspects of the subject are covered, from basic biology, environmental requirements, nutrition and reproduction, to culture in intensive and semi-intensive systems. There is also discussion of stress and diseases, harvesting and marketing of farmed tilapia, the role of tilapia culture in rural development and environmental impact of tilapia culture.

Tilapia are sometimes known as "aquatic chicken", due to their high growth rates, adaptability to a wide range of environmental conditions, ability to grow and reproduce in captivity and feed on low trophic levels. As a result, these fishes have become excellent candidates for aquaculture, especially in tropical and subtropical regions. Indeed, tilapia culture has been expanding rapidly, and is now practised in more than one hundred countries worldwide.
