    Outstanding reference and textbook, February 23, 1999
    By A Customer

    Outsdanding textbook for college and graduate students, as well as an excellent source of reference for consultants and professionals in the field of aquaculture. It covers most aspects related to cage aquaculture, from site selection to environmental issues, including system design, stocking densities, feeding and management strategies and so forth. It is mandatory reading in my aquaculture courses and I strongly recommend it to anybody interested in the field.
