This study of both scientific and economic aspects of aquaculture in sea and fresh water describes the subject's various categories, such as seaweeds, molluscs, shellfish and fish. It represents the current state of the art, collating information from various, previously scattered sources. Each invited author is a specialist in his own field and the chapters are structured to include the same main headings, such as biology, rearing and culture techniques and economic aspects. There is a discussion of the improved synthesis of water treatment with both known and novel techniques. Economic facts are stressed, such as the sea currently providing 1.3 per cent of the human diet for the world, with sea fishing reaching 75 million tonnes.
