The aquaculture industry continues to be one of the fastest growing sectors of animal production in the world. As aquaculture production continues to expand there is a continuous search for new species to culture to meet the demands of new national and international markets. Selecting species for aquaculture development often poses an enormous challenge for decision makers responsible for deciding which culture technologies to support with public resources.
Species and System Selection for Sustainable Aquaculture brings together contributions from international experts in socioeconomics who draw on their experiences to make suggestions for meeting the challenges of identifying potential species and production systems for sustainable aquaculture. The emphasis of this book is on the socioeconomic perspective and its contents are divided into three sections: Principles, Practices, and Species-Specific Public Policies for Sustainable Development. This volume is the outgrowth of a workshop held by the Oceanic Institute's Aquaculture Interchange Program with examples from around the globe.
- Looks at socio-economic ramifications of the development of new aquaculture species and technologies
- Contributions from international experts with experience of developing new species and technologies for sustainable aquaculture
- Valuable reference for researchers, professionals, economists, and policy makers charged with developing a sustainable aquaculture industry
