A Manual of Fish Culture, originally published by the U.S. Commission on Fisheries in 1897, contains descriptions of culture techniques for more than 40 species or groups of finfishes, plus lobsters, oysters, clams, and frogs. When published, it contained all the information needed by fish culturists. The techniques and practices described in the Manual became the standard for aquaculturists and the forerunner of the technical publications of today.
This reprint of the 1897 book was produced by the Fish Culture Section of the American Fisheries Society.
