Aquaculture, also known as aquafarming, is the farming of aquatic organisms such as fish, crustaceans, molluscs and aquatic plants. Aquaculture involves cultivating freshwater and saltwater populations under controlled conditions, and can be contrasted with commercial fishing, which is the harvesting of wild fish. Mariculture refers to aquaculture practiced in marine environments and in underwater habitats.

Phillips, with contributions from those listed in the .Thailand is blessed with an abundance of marine and freshwater resources. in 2002 it ranked in the top-ten fishing nations of the world. Thailand is also recognised for the advances it has made in developing its aquaculture sector. Capture...
This book provides an comprehension on a large range of aquaculture connected subjects. The guide chapters are prepared by top specialists in their respective regions. This e-book will be similarly beneficial for students and pros in aquaculture and biotechnology.
The e-book is organized in 4 sections.
The initial part discusses fish nourishment 2nd area is considers the application of genetic in aquaculture area 3 takes a search at existing methods for controlling lipid oxidation and melanosis in Aquaculture merchandise.
Striped catfish is one of the most imortant aquaculture species. Feed cost is a large component in striped catdfish production cost. Improving feed utilization is concerning to efficiency and sustainable aquaculture. Our general objective that improving feed utilization in striped catfish by addition of....
Open ocean aquaculture is broadly defined as the rearing of marine organisms in exposed areas beyond significant coastal influence. Open ocean aquaculture employs less control over organisms and the surrounding environment than do inshore and land-based aquaculture, which are often undertaken in enclosures, such as ponds. When aquaculture operations are located beyond coastal state jurisdiction, within the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ; generally 3 to 200 miles from shore), they are regulated primarily by federal agencies.

The growth of Aquaculture and its future role as a food supplier to human society
has environmental, social and economic limitations, affecting marine ecosystems
and socio-economic scales from local to global. These are close links with human
health requirements and societal needs for various goods and services provided by
marine ecosystems. This book shows this broad spectrum of dependencies of the future
growth of aquaculture and highlights both relevant problems and expectations.
HHouseholds coastal aquaculture, ranging in area from 0.5 ha to 3 ha, producing
90% of farmed shrimp production in Vietnam, worth $ 1 billion in 2004. the
viability and environmental sustainability of farm economy in this area is threatened
poor agricultural practices led to outbreaks of diseases, environmental degradation, plant
contaminated with chemicals and antibiotics and reduced output.
An environmental assessment initial quality and identify potential impacts to cultural goal of help desk staff and planners to assess the impact of projects related to environmental impact. The assessment will provide a survey of environmental impacts likely to ensure that if an aquaculture project is successfully implemented. Initial evaluation is also key to see what a positive impact and / or negative after project implementation. Typically, an assessment will be based on easily accessible information, previous studies, the local population, etc....
Streptococcal disease caused by Streptococcus iniae is without doubt one of the major
bacterial diseases in fish. It has been reported to cause significant mortality in more than 12
different aquaculture species. Its distribution is worldwide in both freshwater and
marine environments. The annual impact to aquaculture has been estimated to be over US$100
million. However, in the past, very few reports have described its presence in Asia.
Myanmar was hit by Cyclone Nargis in May 2008 with winds
of 190km/hour and an enormous sea surge. It destroyed
houses and even whole villages and caused massive
fl ooding with an offi cially estimated death toll of 140,000
people and the livelihoods of 2.4 million people seriously
affected. I outlined issues relating to small-scale aquaculture
in articles in previous columns (‘Myanmar revisited’ in the
January-March 2009 issue and ‘Small-scale aquaculture
in the Ayeyarwady Delta’ in the April-June 2009 issue).
Abstract Aquaculture is one of the fastest developing growth sectors in the world and Asia presently contributes about 90% to the global production. However, disease outbreaks are constraint to aquaculture production thereby affects both economic development of the country and socio-economic status of the local people in many countries of Asia-Paciﬁc region.
ABSTRACT Bacillus spp. were isolated from the intestine of black tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon which were collected from the Gulf of Thailand at Chonburi province area during October 2005 to September 2006. The bacterial antagonist activity were tested with aquacultural pathogenic bacteria. The cross streak method results showed that Bacillus W803 and Bacillus W120 could inhibit Aeromonas hydrophila AQAH after 24 hours.
