{PDF} Advances in aquaculture hatchery technology Geoff Allan, Gavin Burnell


For seafood production to meet expected demand from a growing global population, many more millions of tons of seafood will need to be produced. The expectations for increased product from capture fisheries is limited, so this rise in production will have to come from aquaculture, one of the fastest growing food producing sectors in the world. A primary constraint to the continuing growth of aquaculture is the supply of juveniles from hatcheries.The editors and contributors review current and emerging technologies in key areas of hatchery production, which they first covered in a previous book, “New technologies in aquaculture” (CRC Press/Woodhead Publishing, 2009). Chapters cover advances in reproduction and larval rearing and address challenges in hatchery production for selected species.
