From the Back Cover
A sustainable and profitable aquaculture industry is technology andinnovation driven. The biotechnological advances of the last fewdecades have unlocked molecular and genetic techniques to improveproduction traits, enhance treatment and diagnosis of disease, andled to more efficient culture practices. AquacultureBiotechnology
brings together key biotechnological advances andlooks at their potential impacts on the aquaculture industry.
Aquaculture Biotechnology is divided into nine sectionsthat showcase biotechnological innovations and the impacts theseadvances are, and can make on aquaculture production. Sections arefocused on topics ranging from improved broodstock development andbiotechnological advances in fish health to embryogenesis and stemcell technologies in fish reproduction. Beyond the scientificadvances, Aquaculture Biotechnology also looks atsustainability and ethical issues surrounding the use ofbiotechnology in fish production.
Edited by two leading researchers with contributions from aglobal team of authors, Aquaculture Biotechnology will be anessential resource for anyone interested in established andemerging biotechnologies in aquaculture.
