Published in Cooperation with THE WORLD AQUACULTURE SOCIETY

Shrimp is the most important commodity, by value, in the international seafood trade. The shrimp industry has grown exponentially in the last decades, and growth is expected to continue for years to come. For future success in the shrimp industry, shrimp farmers and aquaculture scientists will find a thorough knowledge of the economics, market, and trade as important as an understanding of disease management or husbandry.

Shrimp Culture: Economics, Market, and Trade brings together recent findings of researchers from around the world working in various aspects of the economics of shrimp farming. This volume covers all major aspects of the economics, trade, and markets for shrimp worldwide, with chapters written by experts from major consuming countries such as the U.S.A. and major providers such as China, Thailand and Brazil. The book has been carefully edited by PingSun Leung and Carole Engle, both well known and respected internationally for their work in this area.

Shrimp Culture is an essential purchase for everyone involved in this massive industry across the globe.
