Description

Practical Flatfish Culture and Stock Enhancement is a key reference on culture methods, offering both practical applications and essential biological information. Throughout the text, the culture and stock enhancement issues are treated simultaneously, integrating these two perspectives. By looking to the outcomes of hatchery culture methods, including the economics and fish behavior, Practical Flatfish Culture and Stock Enhancement is a valuable tool in making management decisions.
With chapters on disease diagnosis and treatment, culture methods for a number of specific species, and the use of flatfish as model organisms in laboratory settings, Practical Flatfish Culture and Stock Enhancement comprehensively covers the subject of culture and stock enhancement. The book is especially useful for aquaculture professionals, industry personnel, researchers, biologists, and aquaculture and fisheries management students.
