Aquaculture Ecosystems, Adaptability and Sustainability, Mustafa, Saleem & Rossita Shapawi (editors)
57 Mustafa, Saleem & Rossita Shapawi (editors) Aquaculture Ecosystems, Adaptability and Sustainability
1118778545 / 9781118778548 New
2015. 26cm. Pp.424. Colour photos & figures. Hardbound.

Focuses on incorporating the elements of adaptability and sustainability in aquaculture for changing the course of its development towards the ecosystem approach.

The contents have been structured to justify the importance of forging synergies of aquaculture with other methods of seafood production for addressing the numerous challenges and meeting production targets. With the stabilization of capture fisheries, there is no alternative to aquaculture in seafood security, and this requires changing the course of production methods.

This uptodate reference contains synthesis of information on current practices and the wisdom of capitalizing on gains from established practices, and identifies new areas for reforms in charting the way forward. It suggests the need for new models of development that evolve in an innovation ecosystem for accelerating the merger of time-tested approaches with the modern knowledge deeply rooted in environmental compatibility.

Risk Analysis in Aquatic Animal Health, Rodgers, C.J. (editor)
73 Rodgers, C.J. (editor) Risk Analysis in Aquatic Animal Health
9290445211 / 9789290445210 New
2001. 30cm. Pp.x, 346. Photos & figures. Softbound.

Risk Analysis in Aquatic Animal Health is a compilation of the presentations, session discussions and reports from the OIE International Conference held in Paris from 8 to 10 February 2000. This Conference provided the first opportunity to bring together experts in this important developing discipline. The meeting was held with the objective of provoking international dialogue and providing the latest information to scientists, academics and regulators responsible for developing, evaluating and implementing measures intended to protect aquatic animal health.

The poorly understood aspects of the life-cycles and survival parameters of fish and shellfish pathogens make the application of risk assessment difficult, even to the most studied models. However, as research is lacking in some important areas, risk assessment can be used to highlight research priorities. The Proceedings of this Conference therefore represent an attempt to resolve some of the surrounding issues and clarify the understanding of the risk analysis mechanism as applied to aquatic animals.

The contemporary nature of this topic is reflected in the content of the Proceedings which answers the current need for a reference work providing explanatory background detail. The final balance is a unique compilation of information that can be used both as an entry point for anyone wanting to learn more about the subject, as well as a tool for those who require the latest developments in the field.

The sections provide a combination of overview and more specific information on aquatic animal health related to risk analysis methodology, areas of application, standardisation of monitoring programmes, pathogen survival and detection techniques. Forward-looking recommendations are also made and appendices include the text of the Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS Agreement) and a list of useful websites.

These Proceedings provide an indispensable collection of authorative papers that will promote advances in risk analysis for aquatic animal health and produce the necessary impetus for generating further interest.

Tarpons. Biology, Ecology, Fisheries, Spotte, Stephen S
77 Spotte, Stephen S Tarpons. Biology, Ecology, Fisheries
1119185491 / 9781119185499 New
2016. 28cm. Pp.332. Hardbound.

Tarpons arose from an ancient lineage, and just two species exist today, confined to the tropics and subtropics: Megalops atlanticus in the western and eastern Atlantic and Megalops cyprinoides distributed widely across the Indo-west Pacific. The Atlantic tarpon is considered king of the saltwater sport fishes and supports a multi-billion dollar recreational fishery in the U.S. alone. The Pacific tarpon, which is much smaller, is less valued by anglers. Both have limited commercial value but offer considerable potential for future aquaculture because of their hardiness, rapid growth, and ease of adaptation to captivity.

This book is the latest and most thorough text on the biology, ecology, and fisheries (sport and commercial) of tarpons. The chapters comprise clear, intricate discourses on such subjects as early development and metamorphosis, population genetics, anatomical and physiological features and adaptations, migrations, reproductive biology, and culminate with a concise overview of the world's tarpon fisheries. A comprehensive appendix includes Spotte's original translations of important papers published previously by others in Spanish and Portuguese and unavailable until now to English readers.
