As the world's population and the demand for seafood increase, the
production of seafood from aquaculture has also seen massive
increase and is set to continue. With wild stocks of many molluscan
species depleted, aquaculture is firmly recognised as the means
now, and for the future, of bridging the gap between the supply and
demand of seafood.
This important book covers the general biology of bivalves,
hatchery culture methods and specific and comprehensive details of
the cultivation of many commercially important species, including
clams, oysters, mussels, scallops and abalone.
Based on the author's extensive experience and hands on research
into this subject, Molluscan Shellfish Farming provides essential
information for all involved in the culture of molluscs. The book
will be particularly useful for aquaculture personnel on working
fish farms and in academic research posts. Libraries in all
universities and research establishments where aquaculture and
biological sciences are studied and taught should have copies of
this book available.
Part of this book is based on a Buckland Lecture, sponsored by
the Buckland Trustees
