79 Stickney, R. R Aquaculture, An Introductory Text, 3rd edition
1786390108 / 9781786390103 New
2017. 28cm. Pp.352. Colour photos, figures. Softbound.

Providing a broad and readable overview of the subject, this updated third edition of Aquaculture: An Introductory Text covers issues associated with sustainable aquaculture development, culture systems, hatchery methods, nutrition and feeding of aquaculture species, reproductive strategies, harvesting and many other topics. While its main focus is on the culture of fish, molluscs and crustaceans for food, the book also covers other forms of aquaculture, such as the production of seaweeds, recreational fish and ornamental species, and live foods such as algae and rotifers that are used to feed larval shrimp and marine fish.

Thoroughly updated and revised, the third edition of this essential textbook now includes:
- Increased coverage of species under culture
- Increased scope to cover species for enhancement, recreational fishing, commercial fishing and aquaria
- Newly developed culture systems
- Information on predictive impacts of climate change
- Updated aquaculture production statistics

Aquaculture remains one of the most rapidly growing agricultural disciplines and this book remains an essential resource for all students of aquaculture and related disciplines.

The Banggai Cardinalfish: Natural History, Conservation, and Culture of Pterapogon Kauderni, Vagelli, Alejandro, A
82 Vagelli, Alejandro, A The Banggai Cardinalfish: Natural History, Conservation, and Culture of Pterapogon Kauderni
0470654996 / 9780470654996 New
2011. 26cm. Pp.224. Hardbound.

The Banggai cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni, is a fascinating species that possesses a series of remarkable biological characteristics making it unique among coral reef fishes. It has been the focus of studies in reproduction, ecology, population genetics and evolution. In addition, since its rediscovery in the late 1990s, it has become tremendously popular in the international ornamental fish trade, and indiscriminate collecting has led to its inclusion in the 2007 IUCN Red List as an endangered species.

The Banggai Cardinalfish: Natural History, Conservation, and Culture of Pterapogon Kauderni is divided into three main parts: a general introduction to the fish, including a historical synopsis with an overview of the Banggai Archipelago; a comprehensive treatment of the species’ natural history (distribution, morphology, reproduction, embryology, ecology, genetics, systematics and evolution); an account of the conservation of the species, including descriptions of its fishery, attempts to protect it under CITES, and introduction programmes. The book also includes an appendix offering information on captive breeding, juvenile mortality reduction, and common diseases.

A unique resource for ichthyology students and researchers working on fish biology, ecology and conservation, and for marine ornamental fish hobbyists and aquarium professionals.

Evolutionary Biology of the Atlantic Salmon, Vladić, Tomislav & Erik Petersson
83 Vladić, Tomislav & Erik Petersson Evolutionary Biology of the Atlantic Salmon
1466598484 / 9781466598485 New
2015. 26cm. Pp.184. 8 colour photo-plates. Hardbound.

Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar, L) is an anadromous species contributing to major fishery catches and comprising a significant part of the aquaculturally produced fish for human consumption. The aim of this book is to incite the interest in the field of knowledge gathered from a broad scope of disciplines (gamete physiology, life history, behaviour, genetics and conservation, molecular techniques, and evolution) that have investigated this fish species. Undeniably, increasing fishery pressure on wild fish stocks throughout the world oceans has prompted the need for sustainable aquacultural production for increasing human demands.

The correct management of freshwaters and their fisheries is vital to ensure environmental protection and an appropriate level of stocking densities of healthy fish in designated angling water bodies.

Fisheries Management. A Manual for Still-water Coarse Fisheries, which is aimed primarily at fisheries managers and those considering buying or building lakes for fisheries, provides detailed information which is essential for all those involved in the area.

The contents of this very useful and comprehensive book have been written by practising fisheries managers and scientists and include basic principles in fisheries ecology, in management and in fish stock assessment. Chapters also include coverage of how conditions can be improved and fisheries enhanced through the use of nutrient management, habitat improvement and conservation, with important case study details included. Chapters on fisheries and the law and business best management practices are also included.

1845938062 / 9781845938062 New
2011. 28cm. Pp.360. Hardbound.

Fish Parasites, Pathobiology and Protection. Focusing on pathobiology and protective strategies against protozoan and metazoan parasites of fish, this book reviews the latest research on important parasites: those that cause financial hardships to the aquaculture industry, have been introduced to new geographical regions through transportation of infected fish, are pathogenic to groups of finfish and detrimental to production, are highly adaptable and not host-specific with worldwide distributions, and that may serve as disease models for studies on other pathogens. It also highlights gaps in the knowledge to help direct future research.
