94 CRESWELL, C. LeRoy. Aquaculture Desk Reference

CRESWELL, C. LeRoy. Aquaculture Desk Reference. New York : Chapman & Hall, (1995). Second Printing. Pp [i]-ix,(1),1-206. Illustrated. 4to, yellow paper covered boards. “Today's expanding field of aquaculture requires data andtechniques from a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including marine and aquatic sciences, chemistry, animal nutrition, engineering, and mathem atics. Since this information is typically found only in texts and technical reports specific to each discipline, it can be very time-consuming for aquaculturists to access the facts they need. Aquaculture Desk Reference solves this problem by compiling data, formulas, computations, conversions, andtechnical information from diverse sources into one manual designed for aq uaculture professionals. It serves as a quick source of technical know-how that will drastically reduce the time spent on fact-finding and calculation. Information needed by aquaculturists and growers in both planning aquaculture projects and day-to-day operations of aquaculture facilities is included. Relevant data from fields such as physical and chemical oceanography, engineering, and the biological sciences is simply indexed for easy retrieval. Particularly valuable are the extensive tables related to water chemistry, fluid mechanics and engineering, nutrition, and disease treatment. Specifications for construction materials and many other topics are organized ina concise, understandable fashion. Among the other important areas covered are properties of water, hatchery methods, phytoplankton culture, feeds an d food conversion, aquaculture ponds, pumps and plumbing, water treatment, and properties of materials used in aquaculture. Where appropriate, the author provides equations and formulas along with simple examples so users canadapt the information to particular situations. Aquaculture Desk Reference is an essential time-saving resource for all practicing aquaculturists in industry, academic research, and education.” - from the back cover.
