Aquaculture Production Systems provides a valuable survey of key production systems that will allow the reader to better understand how aquaculture depends upon and interacts with its environment.

Aquaculture Production Systems looks at a variety of systems currently used in the production of shellfish and finfish. These systems range from low input methods to super-intensive systems. The book covers: 1. open systems including shellfish aquaculture, cage culture and ranching, 2. semi-closed systems including raceways, and ponds, 3. closed recirculating and biofloc based systems and 4. Hybrid systems including partitioned aquaculture, aquaponics and in pond raceways. Aquaculture Production Systems will serve as an excellent text to those just being introduced to aquaculture as well as being a valuable reference to well-established professionals seeking information on production methods.
