Fisheries and Aquaculture: Volume 9

Gustavo Lovrich and Martin Thiel


This volume examines fisheries and aquaculture. The chapters in this volume synthesize the current understanding of the diverse topics in fisheries and aquaculture. The first part of the book explores worldwide crustacean fisheries and concludes with two chapters on harvested crustaceans that are usually not within the focus of the mainstream fisheries research, possibly because they are caught by local fishing communities in small-scale operations and sold locally as subsistence activity. In the second part of the book, the authors explore the variety of cultured crustacean species. The chapt ... More
