Aquaculture in China Book Review:

Fish have been a major component of our diet and it has been suggested that fish/seafood consumption contributed to the development of the human brain, and this together with the acquisition of bipedalism, perhaps made us what we are. In the modern context global fish consumption is increasing. However, unlike our other staples, until a few years back the greater proportion of our fish supplies were of a hunted origin. This scenario is changing and a greater proportion of fish we consume now is of farmed origin. Aquaculture, the farming of waters, is thought to have originated in China, many millennia ago. Nevertheless, it transformed into a major food sector only since the second half of the last century, and continues to forge ahead, primarily in the developing world. China leads the global aquaculture production in volume, in the number of species that are farmed, and have contributed immensely to transforming the practices from an art to a science. This book attempts to capture some of the key elements and practices that have contributed to the success of Chinese aquaculture. The book entails contributions from over 100 leading experts in China, and provides insights into some aquaculture practices that are little known to the rest of the world. This book will be essential reading for aquaculturists, practitioners, researchers and students, and planners and developers.

Protozoan Parasites of Fishes Book Review:

Based on twenty years of research experience, this unique, large format volume presents an up-to-date treatment of the biology, relation to the host, taxonomy and diagnostic features of protozoan parasites infecting fishes. By presenting definitions of all 151 genera, keys for the determination of all main groups of fish protozoa, copious illustrations and half-tone plates, and details on the technique of investigation, the book makes it possible to determine all protozoan parasites of fishes down to generic level. In each genus, all important pathogenic species are dealt with, special attention being paid to their pathogenic action, and these are well documented by photomicrographs. A wide range of information is given on host-parasite relations, including data on pathogenicity of separate groups and species; and a host-parasite checklist enables a quick orientation on protozoa that may be encountered in one hundred economically important fish species. In addition to the to the true protozoan phyla, an appendix lists a few organisms of uncertain position with alleged or possible relation to protozoa; altogether, 561 species are described. This book is the first of its kind and should be invaluable reading for all fish parasitologists, fisheries biologists, aquaculturists and all others interested in protozoan parasites of fishes.

Novel Developments in Aquaculture and Fisheries Science Book Review:

Aquaculture and fisheries science are two distinct yet interrelated fields of study. Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic animals such as fishes, molluscs, algae and aquatic plants. Fisheries science is concerned with the management of fisheries by integrating the principles of oceanography, marine biology, ecology, limnology, etc. A common concern in both these fields is the sustainable exploitation of aquatic organisms in order to prevent extinction. This book aims to shed light on some of the unexplored aspects of aquaculture and fisheries science. It strives to provide significant in-depth knowledge of these disciplines and develop a comprehensive understanding. This book is appropriate for students seeking detailed information in this area as well as for experts.

The Mussel Mytilus Book Review:

Hardbound. Mussels, of the genus Mytilus are among the commonest of marine molluscs and constitute an important element in the ecology of coastal waters. The mussel's sessile habit makes it suited to cultivation and as filter-feeder an effective concentrator of trace toxic substances. They are thus excellent biomonitoring organisms of coastal water quality. The mussel has been extensively used in experimental studies and a vast body of data on its use in fundamental physiological, biochemical, genetic and toxicological investigations is available. More recently this knowledge has extended into the newer fields of nutrition, environmental monitoring, toxicology, disease, population genetics and biotechnology. This book presents a thorough compilation of state-of-the-art information on mussels in the form of critical review papers written by leading authorities in the field. For workers involved in both research and practical aspects of the biology

Advances in Fisheries Science Book Review:

This timely book brings readers up to date on the wide range of advances made in fisheries science since the publication in 1957 of On the Dynamics of Exploited Fish Populations (Beverton and Holt), regarded by many fisheries scientists as one of the most important books on fisheries yet published. Traditional fishery subjects covered include historic declines and changes in fishing fleets, fisheries management and stock assessments, data-poor situations, simulation and modelling of fished stocks, fisheries economics, assessing reproductive potential and dispersal of larvae, fisheries for sharks and rays, and use of marine technology. Additionally, related subjects of increasing importance now that ecological approaches to management are coming to the fore are presented. They include benthic ecology, ecosystem changes linked to fishing, life history theory, the effects of chemicals on fish reproduction, and use of sounds in the sea by marine life. Several chapters offer stimulating philosophical discussion of the many controversial areas still existing. This significant book, edited by Andy Payne, John Cotter and Ted Potter and containing contributions by world-renowned fisheries scientists, including many based at Cefas (where Beverton and Holt's original work was carried out) is an essential purchase for fisheries managers and scientists, fish biologists, marine scientists and ecologists. Libraries in all universities and research establishments where fisheries and biological sciences are studied and taught are likely to need copies of this landmark publication.
