Symposium 46

Aquaculture in the 21st Century is the second volume in the Manual of Fish Culture series. This volume provides the detail and utility for the culture of aquatic organisms that made the first volume indispensable to culturists. Additionally, historical and background material are provided for each of the 26 species covered, which makes this book useful to those more generally interested in aquaculture and the development of aquaculture. The extent of the material provided makes it not only a valuable reference tool, but an excellent resource for aquaculture courses.

As aquaculture continues to expand rapidly into the marine environment, this book has included many marine species that are relative newcomers to the aquaculture stage. Additionally, groups that have come to support large aquaculture industries such as catfish and hybrid striped bass that were not covered in the first volume are covered here.
