From the Back Cover

A sustainable and profitable aquaculture industry is technology and innovation driven. The biotechnological advances of the last few decades have unlocked molecular and genetic techniques to improve production traits, enhance treatment and diagnosis of disease, and led to more efficient culture practices. Aquaculture Biotechnology brings together key biotechnological advances and looks at their potential impacts on the aquaculture industry.

Aquaculture Biotechnology is divided into nine sections that showcase biotechnological innovations and the impacts these advances are, and can make on aquaculture production. Sections are focused on topics ranging from improved broodstock development and biotechnological advances in fish health to embryogenesis and stem cell technologies in fish reproduction. Beyond the scientific advances, Aquaculture Biotechnology also looks at sustainability and ethical issues surrounding the use of biotechnology in fish production.

Edited by two leading researchers with contributions from a global team of authors, Aquaculture Biotechnology will be an essential resource for anyone interested in established and emerging biotechnologies in aquaculture.
