Worldwide, aquaculture has increased at an average of 9.2 for the past 30 years, compared with only 2.8 annual increase for terrestrial farming. Production from fish (and shellfish and algae) farms now comprises 30 of the total of the World's food from our waters and this growth is predicted to continue until at least 2025. Aquaculture engineering is a key area for all aquatic production facilities and this comprehensive book covers all aspects of aquaculture engineering with chapters covering water transport and teatment, production units (e.g. tanks and cages), feeding systems, fish transport and grading, egg handling, instrumentation and monitoring, slaughtering, cleaning and waste handling, construction and design, planning and quality control.
