Japan produces approximately half of the world's eels and the Japanese are the acknowledged experts on eel culture. This new edition of a widely popular book, authored by an expert, sets out in detail the practices in eel culture as developed in Japan and covers all the new techniques and developments which have revolutionised methods in recent years. The text explains how the principles so successfully developed in Japan can be applied elsewhere and this book will, therefore, be invaluable to aquaculturists worldwide.
