The first volume to thoroughly address health concerns in the aquaculture industry Aquaculture-farming aquatic plants and organisms-is one of the fastest growing sectors of agriculture, yet attention to aquaculture health concerns has not been equal to the rate of the industry's expansion. Public, Animal, and Environmental Aquaculture Health Issues serves as a valuable guide to new enterprises, regulatory agencies, and government agencies that are concerned with safe, controlled aquaculture development. The majority of aquaculture products pose no significant health risk; however, like traditional farming operations, aquaculture has associated risks to employees, animals, the environment, and the consumer. This book addresses potential unanticipated risks from the perspectives of both industrialized and nonindustrialized countries, as well as how to mitigate these risks. Chapters include: * Status of World Fisheries and the Role of Aquaculture * Aquaculture Associated Public, Animal, and Environmental Health Issues in Nonindustrialized and Industrialized Countries * Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point and Aquaculture * Aquaculture and International Trade Regulations * Future Considerations of Global Aquaculture Aquaculture business owners, managers, producers, manufacturers, research and academic scientists, government officials, consultants, and food safety specialists will find Public, Animal, and Environmental Aquaculture Health Issues to be a valuable addition to their professional libraries.

This book focuses on incorporating the elements of adaptability and sustainability in aquaculture for changing the course of its development towards the ecosystem approach. The contents have been structured to justify the importance of forging synergies of aquaculture with other methods of seafood production for addressing the challenges and meeting the production targets. With the stabilization of capture fisheries, there is no alternative to aquaculture in seafood security, and this requires changing the course of production methods. The book contains synthesis of information on current practices and the wisdom of capitalizing on gains from established practices, and identifies new areas for reforms in chartering the way forward. It suggests the need for new models of development that evolve in an innovation ecosystem for accelerating the merger of time-tested approaches with the modern knowledge deeply rooted in environmental compatibility. Written with a collective wisdom of distinguished authors from different parts of the world and including some topics that have not been covered in aquaculture books for reasons of their new-found significance are among the important hallmarks of this book. Students and researchers will find this book a useful source of information and policy makers might want to read it for a possible paradigm shift.

Examine the world's leading aquaculture producers! Sustainable Aquaculture: Global Perspectives is a one-of-a-kind primer on the world's leading sources of aquatic production, presenting expert commentary that includes the latest advancements, developments, and research findings. The book examines essential elements of aquaculture (water quality, nutrition, genetics, culture methods) and addresses problems such as over-fishing, coastal and wetland destruction, and habitat and environmental degradation. Sustainable Aquaculture: Global Perspectives addresses policy measures that are essential for the long-term sustainability of the world's fisheries—and the long-term employment of those who rely on the aquaculture industry for their livelihood. As the world's population increases at an alarming rate, the question of how to ensure global food security is one of extreme importance. But the world's total yield is below expectations and the book examines the reasons why: the under-utilization of natural resources, the lack of adoption of modern scientific methods, the lack of standardized, proven pond fertilization protocols; long-term inbreeding and the loss of genetic variability due to genetic drift. Sustainable Aquaculture: Global Perspectives also addresses: freshwater pearl culture breeding programs pond fertilization regimes fish diseases in tropical climates indoor recirculating culture systems water quality management for shrimp farming and much more! With much of its information available in one place for the first time, Sustainable Aquaculture: Global Perspectives is invaluable as a textbook for introductory aquaculture courses and is an essential resource for professionals and researchers.

Aquaculture the farming of fish and aquatic plants has become the world's fastest-growing food production sector, even as the amount of wild fish caught in our seas and freshwaters declines. From fish foods and pharmaceuticals to management of entire aquatic ecosystems, acquaculture is truly changing the face of the waters. Increased growth, however, brings increased risk, and aquaculture now lies at a crossroads. One direction points toward the giant strides in productivity, industry concentration, and product diversification. Another direction points toward the dangers of environmental degradation and the marginalization of small fish farmers. Yet another direction invites aquaculture to champion the poor and provide vital environmental services to stressed aquatic environments. 'Changing the Face of the Waters' offers a cutting-edge analysis of the critical challenges facing aquaculture, balancing aquaculture's role in economic growth with the need for sound management of natural resources. The book also provides guidance on sustainable aquaculture by evaluating alternative development pathways, placing particular emphasis on the application of lessons from Asia to Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America. Aimed at policy makers, planners, and scientists, this book provides a comprehensive frame of reference for orienting ideas and initiatives in this dynamic industry.

This new book takes us through a journey from early life to modern agriculture. The thirty eight authors present current studies on the interrelation of plants-animals. This topic has always fascinated man, as evidenced even by the first chapters of Genesis. The world of aqueous and terrestrial fauna appeared on early earth only after the flora covered the areas with the green pigmentation. Almost all life depends upon sunlight via the photosynthesis of the botanical world. We read abut the harnessing of bee pollination of crops to make it an essential component of modern agriculture endeavor. Some plants seduce insects for pollination by their appearance (e.g., disguised orchids entice visitors); there is the production of sweet nectar as a bribe in flowers to attract bees, butterflies, and honey-sucking birds. A particular outstanding phenomena are the carnivorous plants that have developed trapping and digesting systems of insects and higher animals.
