1 review for Understanding Aquaculture

  1. Mr. Courtney Hough

    ‘The recognised need to produce more nutritious and healthy food while optimising resource use and increasing efficiency has also highlighted the potential for increased aquaculture production. Marine aquaculture has been identified in many areas of the world as being capable of being a major contributor but needs social acceptance for its successful development. “Understanding aquaculture” highlights the science that counters the myths laid at the door of aquaculture and is a valuable contribution for improved understanding of its processes and activities.’ – Mr. Courtney Hough, General Secretary, Federation of European Aquaculture Producers
