Review quote

This should be a frequently used reference for the practicing aquaculturist (whether a fish nutritionist or just someone interested in fish nutrition and feeding). - Fisheries; will undoubtedly provide a popular reference text in university and college libraries. - Aquaculture; discusses the present status of the aquafeed industry and deals with new ideas on feed-cost saving, particularly in semi-intensive aquaculture. SPORE.
