From the Back Cover

The intake of food by fishes is an area of study that is of greatimportance to the applied sciences of fisheries and aquaculture fora number of reasons. For example a thorough knowledge of factorsinfluencing the ingestion of feed can lead to successfulmanipulation of the rearing environment of cultured fishes, therebyensuring improved growth performance and feed utilisation, anddecreasing the amount of waste (and consequent pollution) per unitof fish produced.

This important book, which has arisen out of a European UnionCOST programme, illustrates how insights into the biological andenvironmental factors that underlie the feeding responses of fishmay be used to address practical issues of feed management.

Food Intake in Fish contains carefully edited contributions frominternationally recognised scientists, providing a book that is aninvaluable tool and reference to all those involved in aquaculture,especially those working in the aquaculture feed industry andscientific personnel in commercial and research aquaculturefacilities. This book should also find a place on the shelves offish biologists and physiologists and as a reference in librariesof universities, research establishments and aquaculture equipmentcompanies.
