Overview

During the 10 years since publication of the first edition of this well-recieved book, the carp and pond fish farming industry has continued to grow steadily. Fully revised and updated, this comprehensive new edition provides a detailed and practical guide to the principles and practices of farming cyprinid fish, using traditional and modern pond culture techniques.

Although concentrating primarily on carp culture, this can be regarded as a model for the production of many species in ponds; the most widely used method of producing fish throughout the world. Specific information is also included for other species, such as Pike, Wels Catfish and Goldfish and now African Catfish and Sterlet. The authors, who between them have many years' experience farming fish as well as researching and teaching the subjects covered in the book, have produced a most useful and timely second edition.

The book will be of great interest to fish farmers, researchers, teachers and students in the area of aquaculture and related subjects, to all those involved specifically in the carp farming industry and in the aquaculture of other pond-cultured species. Copies of the book should be available as a reference source in libraries in academic and research establishments where aquaculture is studied an taught, and for practical reference on fish farms.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...[this book] is not matched by anythng else available and is a 'must' for practical aquaculturists" (Aquaculture News, April 2002)

"The book is very easy to read... gives you a real insight on the subject. The authors have many years of experience farming the species they write about." (Aquaculture Magazine, 2002)

Booknews
A single-volume translation of two 1980 books by Hungarian fish- farmers on the techniques of their trade. Carp, spawned and grown in ponds, are the focus; a single chapter notes differences for the other species mentioned. Informative drawings accompany descriptions of seed production, rearing the small fry, and the annual cycle of carp husbandry. Introductory chapters outline the principles, and review the industry's history. No bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
