Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The editors and authors did a good job of addressing a variety of topics in the eighteen chapters. The book provides a lot of detail on some topics, but the strength of the volume-and the thing that makes it a very worthwhile edition to an aquaculture library-is that most of the chapters offer overviews, and in some cases, conceptual frameworks, or specific topicsEach person who reads this book will find sections that are of interest and very informative."--International Shellfisheries Association Quarterly Newsletter
