Description

This study offers coverage of the current state of our knowledge on the biological and ecological crayfish, looking at their distribution throughout the world and discussing the diseases, predators, and other outside factors which can affect their populations. While Professor Arrignon outlines quantitative studies of wild populations, looking at methods of sampling, catching and measuring, the main theme of the book is crayfish culture. Aspects of biological management, breeding, nutrition (including the pros and cons between natural and synthetic foods), harvesting, packaging, transporting, marketing and economic strategy are all covered in depth. Practical issues are not neglected either, with advice provided on the building of hatcheries, ponds and raceways.show more
