Synopsis

Live Feeds in Marine Aquaculture by Josianne G. Stottrup

As the expansion in world aquaculture continues at a very high rate, so does the need for information on feeding of cultivated fish and shellfish. In the larval and juvenile phases of many species, the use of manufactured feed is not possible. This important book covers in detail the biology and culture of the main live prey and microalgae used as feeds in the aquaculture of major commercial species including shrimps, sea bass, halibut, cod and bivalves. Contents include comprehensive details of the status of marine aquaculture in relation to live prey, and chapters covering the biology, production, harvesting, processing and nutritional value of microalgae and the main prey species: rotifers, Artemia and copepods. The editors have drawn together an impressive international team of contributors, providing a work that is set to become the standard reference and practical guide on the subject for many years to come. Live Feeds in Marine Aquaculture is an essential purchase for anyone involved in marine aquaculture, including fish farmers, researchers, and personnel in feed and equipment companies supplying the aquaculture trade. An extremely valuable tool as a reference and practical manual for students and professionals alike; libraries in all universities and research establishments where biological and aquatic sciences and aquaculture are studied and taught, should have copies available on their shelves.

Reviews

Overall, this book is a good reference source and will be a useful addition to the shelves, not only for aquaculturists but also for applied phycologists. (Journal of Applied Phycology) This book is recommended to everyone involved in the production or use of live feed in aquaculture. (Aquaculture Research) A comprehensive publication on the culture and use of live feeds in marine aquaculture is quite timely... Live Feeds in Marine Aquaculture not only provides an excellent summary of the use of traditional live food organisms, it also presents a considerable amount of information on organisms that have more recently come into prominence...The book provides an excellent review of the topic and contains a considerable amount of how--to information. (World Aquaculture) Live Feeds in Marine Aquaculture is a book perfectly targeted to fill an important gap in education and research in a specialism that has grown hugely over recent years... I would recommend this book most highly for anyone interested in marine aquaculture. (Aquaculature News) Live Feeds in Marine Aquaculture is an essential purchase for anyone involved in marine aquaculture, including fish farmers, researchers and personnel in feed and equipment companies supplying the aquaculture trade. An extremely valuable tool as a reference and practical manual for students and professionals alike. (International Aquafeed, November 2005)
