The revised edition of the comprehensive book that explores the principles and applications of aquaculture engineering

Since the publication of the first edition of Aquaculture Engineering there have been many advances in the industry. The revised and thoroughly updated third edition of Aquaculture Engineering covers the principles and applications of all major facets of aquaculture engineering and the newest developments in the field. Written by a noted expert on the topic, the new edition highlights information on new areas of interest including RAS technology and offshore fish farming. 

Comprehensive in scope, the book examines a range of topics including: water transportation and treatment; feed and feeding systems; fish transportation and grading; cleaning and waste handling; instrumentation and monitoring; removal of particles; aeration and oxygenation; recirculation and water reuse systems; ponds; and the design and construction of aquaculture facilities. This important book:

  • Presents an updated review of the basic principles and applications in aquaculture engineering
  • Includes information on new areas of focus; RAS technology and offshore fish farming
  • Contains a revised edition of the classic resource on aquaculture engineering
  • Continues to offer an authoritative guide written by a leading expert in the field

Written for aquaculture scientists and managers, engineers, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, and biological scientists, the third edition of Aquaculture Engineering is the authoritative guide to the topic that has been updated to include the most recent developments in the industry.
