An up-to-data reference and educational tool for students and researchers interested in the nutrition of aquaculture species. Aquaculture nutrition continues its rapid growth. Yet the growth is not uniform. Main sub-division and specialized areas of selfish nutrition have grown at the much more rapid rate then other areas resulting in an inevitable fragmentation. This book has attempted to bring some of the fragmented fields back together. The first five chapters, thoroughly referenced, generally concentrate on those aquaculture species which are commercially cultured throughout the world. The final chapters include the directory of the global aquafeed industry, and a glossary describing over terms on aquaculture nutrition.
