Prawn Culture Edited by New
This long awaited book is
packed with information on virtually every aspect of Macrobrachium
rosenbergii farming. Summaries of the biology and
culture of freshwater prawns are extensively covered as
well as hatchery systems, disease management, larval and
growout feeds, economics, processing, and marketing.
There are even some recipes included to help prepare
freshwater prawns for a tasty dinner!
The book is an invaluable
comprehensive review of freshwater prawn farming
research, and farming practices from around the world.
Published in late 2000, it is the most up to date
source of information for anyone interested in freshwater
Fish farmers in the
Southern US will be particularly interested in a section
of the book specifically discussing growout systems to
improve Macrobrachium production in Temperate
climates. Another section covers polyculture of
freshwater prawns with fish, including catfish.

4. Artificial Reef Evaluation with
Application to Natural Marine Habitats
Edited by William Seaman, Jr.
- From the CRC Marine Science series comes a
comprehensive guide to the methods used to evaluate the
effectiveness of coastal and oceanic artificial habitats.
This book covers everything from the design of reef
studies and multidisciplinary methods of investigation,
to data analysis and practical examples applying covered
methods to reefs built for various purposes. These
methods are equally applicable in evaluating natural
benthic marine habitats such as coral reefs.
- Applies to the fields of fishery
production, aquaculture, marine park management, habitat
protection, environmental mitigation and restoration,
recreational fishing, and eco-tourism.
- Features include:
- * Reviews methods used in monitoring and
assessing physical, biological, and economic components
of artificial reefs in coastal and oceanic waters
- * Provides practical benchmarks for
judging reef "success" and assessing the value
of different research capabilities
- * Addresses the field of aquatic habitat
technology with in-depth case studies of typical reef
- * 272 Pages

assessing seagrasses. This work should aid estuarine
ecosystem management as a reference to the effective and
efficient assessment of the health and condition of
- * 28 original research and review chapters
covering scientific as well as management topics.
- * Organized around four major themes:
Ecology and Physiology, Monitoring and Trends,
Management, and Restoration.
- * Conveys new assessment methods and data
- * Serves as a thorough guide to which
estuarine resource managers can refer when seeking
guidance or clarification on management / monitoring
issues regarding seagrasses.
- * 336 Pages
