Aquaculture engineering requires knowledge of the many general aspects of engineering such as material technology, building design and construction, mechanical engineering and environmental engineering. In this comprehensive book, Odd-Ivar Lekang introduces these principles and demonstrates how such technical knowledge can be applied to aquaculture systems, offering the reader coverage including:
• Construction and design of aquatic production facilities
• Water transportation and treatment
• Different production units
• Feed and feeding systems
• Instrumentation and monitoring
• Fish transportation and grading
• Cleaning and waste handling
Fish farmers and other personnel involved in the aquaculture industry, suppliers to the fish farming business and designers and manufacturers will find this book an invaluable resource. The book will be an important addition to the shelves of all libraries in universities and research institutions where aquaculture, agriculture and environmental sciences are studied and taught.

'Fish farmers and other personnel involved in the aquaculture industry, suppliers to the fish farming business and designers and manufacturers will find this book an invaluable resource. The book will be an important addition to the shelves of all libraries in universities and research institutions where aquaculture, agriculture and environmental sciences are studied and taught.'
'A useful book that, hopefully, will inspire successors that focus more on warm water aquaculture and on large-scale mariculture such as tuna farming.'
'the book...provides a useful history and description of the current state-of-the-art of aquaculture engineering.'
Work Boat World, October 2007
the inclusion of worked examples to illustrate the practical application of technical equations is a usefulo deature... this book is richly illutsrated, with many black and white photographs, line diagrams and graphs'
