The Sparidae, commonly known as breams and porgies, is a family of fishes of the order Perciformes, and includes about 115 species of mainly marine coastal fish of high economic value, exploited and farmed for human consumption, as well as for recreational purposes. This landmark publication brings together a huge wealth of information on the biology and culture of gilthead sea bream and other Sparidae species. Commencing with an overview of the current status of aquaculture of Sparidae, the book continues with comprehensive coverage of the family’s phylogeny, evolution and taxonomy, stress and welfare issues, and reproduction and broodstock management. Further chapters include coverage of early development and metabolism, production systems, nutrition, quality, and health management. A final cutting-edge chapter looks at genomic-proteomic research in Sparidae and its application to genetic improvement. With contributions from Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australasia and North America, carefully drawn together and edited by Professor M. Pavlidis and Dr C. C. Mylonas, themselves well known for their work in this area, Sparidae is an essential purchase for anyone working with this important family of fishes. Fish biologists, fish farmers, aquaculture researchers, and fisheries managers will all find much of great use and interest within this book’s covers. All universities and research establishments where biological sciences, aquaculture and fisheries science are studied and taught should have copies of this excellent book on their shelves.

Nutrition And Feeding Of Fish

Aquaculture is more than a science in its infancy; it is now recognized as a viable and profitable enterprise worldwide. It will continue to grow and supply an increasingly larger percentage of fishery products consumed because the oceans are inadequately managed and their yield is unpredictable. Supply, price, and quality can be controlled more effectively when fish are cultured under managed conditions, like corn in a field. As aquaculture technology has evolved, there has been a trend toward higher yields and faster growth which has necessitated enhancing or replacing natural foods with prepared diets. In many aquaculture operations today, feed accounts for over half of the vari able operating cost. Feeding fish in their aqueous environment takes on dimensions beyond those considered in fee ding land animals; the nutrient requirements, feeding practices, and feeding environment are unique for fish. Knowledge on nutrition and practical feeding of fish is essential to successful aquaculture. This book is intended to be helpful to students, scientists, practic ing nutritionists, and aquaculturists. It covers the known nutrient requirements and deficiency effects for various fishes. It discusses nu trient sources and preparation of research and practical feeds. It gives direction for designing and conducting fish nutrition and feeding ex periments. Feeding practices for several commercially important fishes representing diverse culture systems (coldwater fish, warm water fish, crustaceans, pond cultures, and highly artificial cultures) are presented. One book, of course, cannot be all-encompassing in the area of fish nutrition and feeding.

Using the latest research in fish nutrition, this volume revises and combines the 1981 edition on coldwater fish and the 1983 edition on warmwater fish and shellfish. In addition to updating requirements for energy, protein, minerals, and vitamins, this book provides, for the first time, summary tables on nutrient requirements of a variety of fish species, including channel catfish, rainbow trout, Pacific salmon, carp, and tilapia. Tabular data on amino acid requirements of 11 species are also included. Shellfish are not included in this edition because of lack of scientific information.

Chapter I - Importance of Nutrition of Species in Aquaculture, Chapter II - Nutritional Requirements of Finfish, Chapter III - Nutritional Requirements of Crustaceans (Shrimps and Prawns, Lobsters and Crabs), Chapter IV - Broodstock and Larval Nutrition, Chapter V - Feed Ingredients, Chapter VI - Feed Additives, Chapter VII - Feed Formulation An Feed Technology, Chapter VIII - Feeding Management and Sustainability, Chapter IX 0- Biofloc Technology, Chapter X - Aquaponics. Fish and shellfish are contributing highly nutritious and healthy food to the food basket the world over. The world per capita seafood consumption reached a record level of 20 kg per person per year for the first time in history. This is twice the level of average per capita fish consumption in 1960s in the world. The global trade value of seafood has increased to $ 150 billion. The total fish production in the world is 150 million tons in 2014 (FAO) out of which 70 million tons is contributed by aquaculture. While the natural capture fishery resources are fast dwindling, contribution by aquaculture is ever increasing. The culture of crustaceans and finfishes is propelled mainly by intentional feeding of formulated feeds. As the demand for fish as food for human consumption is ever-increasing, aquaculture is the only alternative to bridge the gap between supply and demand. Indian aquaculture production has shown impressive growth with total aquaculture production nearing 7 million tons contributing almost 70% to the total seafood production. Indian aquaculture sector is mainly represented by the large scale culture of Indian Major Carps (catla, rohu and mrigal), exotic carps (grass carp, silver carp and common carp) and Pangasius catfish. Freshwater prawn and Penaeid shrimp are the crustaceans that are adding to seafood exports from the country. Aquaculture of Asian seabass, milkfish, mullets, grouper and cobia etc. has been gaining momentum. The total aqua feed production is touching almost 300,000 tons per annum.

There is considerable global interest in the culture of finfish species both for cold and warm water aquaculture development and growth. Essential information on the biology, domestication and aquacultural characteristics of a wide selection of novel and established species is provided in the form of technical sheets, species descriptions and information on current rearing practices, making this a must-have reference in the field of aquacultural science. The book also offers a basic framework in order to support investment strategies for research and developement efforts aimed at the emergence of a profitable finfish aquaculture industry and presents a rationale for species diversification, different approaches to species selection and basic economical and market considerations governing the launch of strategic development and commercialization efforts.
