About this book

This book is about important relevant recent research topics in sustainable aquaculture practices. A critical assessment of the sustainable fishing methods and the aspect of sustainable aquaculture feed is presented in this volume. A special focus has been given to socio-economic and environmental assessment of aquaculture practices and analysis of carbon footprint under an intensive aquaculture regime. Aquaponics as a niche for sustainable modern aquaculture has been highlighted. The effect of use of pharmaceuticals to prevent fish disease on the surrounding marine environment is an emerging area of concern, and a critical discussion on this aspect is included in the book. The spread of organic waste and nutrients released by fish farms to natural water bodies has raised considerable concerns. Therefore the methods to prevent their dispersion and removal (treatment) have been comprehensively covered in this book. This book is an essential read for academician, researchers, and policy makers in the field of aquaculture. 

Reviews

“This book is an essential read for advanced students, experimental researchers as well as policy makers and other professionals working in the field of aquaculture.” (Ioan I. ARDELEAN, Romanian Journal of Biology, Vol. 63 (1-2), 2018)
“In Sustainable Aquaculture, various experts in the field of aquaculture and hydroponics offer insight into current advances in this realm. … The information presented, while clear and concise, is technical in nature and includes technical and scientific terminology; the book is therefore most appropriate for students and individuals interested in the environment and aquaculture, and for professionals in the field.” (K. R. Thompson, Choice, Vol. 56 (03), November, 2018)​
