Ecological Aquaculture
The Evolution of the Blue Revolution

Ecological Aquaculture: The Evolution of the Blue Revolution covers the principles, practices and policies needed to develop ecologically and socially sustainable aquaculture systems worldwide. It provides fascinating and valuable insights into primitive (and often sustainable) culture systems, and ties these to modern large-scale aquaculture systems.

Ecological Aquaculture: The Evolution of the Blue Revolution provides information spanning a spectrum of activities from artisanal to high technology approaches to producing aquatic organisms in a balanced and environmentally-friendly way.

Ecological Aquaculture is an essential purchase for all aquaculture personnel involved in commercial, practical and research capacities.
