    Description

    The aquaculture industry, which has been growing at a very high rate for many years now, is projected to continue growing at a rate higher than most other industries for the foreseeable future. This growth has mainly been driven by static catches from most fisheries and a decline in stocks of many major commercially caught fish species, combined with the ever increasing need for marine protein due to continuing population growth. An increased focus on the need for fish in the diet, due to mounting evidence of the health benefits of eating more fish, will also increase the demand.
    There has been rapid development of technology in the aquaculture industry, particularly as used in intensive aquaculture where there is high production per m3 farming volume. It is predicted that the expansion of the aquaculture industry will lead to further technical development with more, and cheaper, technology being available for use in the industry in the future years. The aim with this book is to give a general overview of the technology used in the aquaculture industry. Individual chapters focus on water transfer, water treatment, production units and additional equipment used on aquaculture plants. Chapters where equipment is set into systems, such as land-based fish farms and cage farms, are also included.

    Aquaculture Engineering Second Edition

    Description

    As aquaculture continues to grow at a rapid pace, understanding the engineering behind aquatic production facilities is of increasing importance for all those working in the industry. Aquaculture engineering requires knowledge of the many general aspects of engineering such as material technology, building design and construction, mechanical engineering, and environmental engineering. In this comprehensive book now in its second edition, author Odd-Ivar Lekang introduces these principles and demonstrates how such technical knowledge can be applied to aquaculture systems.

    Review of the first edition:
    'Fish farmers and other personnel involved in the aquaculture industry, suppliers to the fish farming business and designers and manufacturers will find this book an invaluable resource. The book will be an important addition to the shelves of all libraries in universities and research institutions where aquaculture, agriculture and environmental sciences are studied and taught.'
