Aquaculture the farming of fish and aquatic plants has become the world's fastest-growing food production sector, even as the amount of wild fish caught in our seas and freshwaters declines. From fish foods and pharmaceuticals to management of entire aquatic ecosystems, acquaculture is truly changing the face of the waters. Increased growth, however, brings increased risk, and aquaculture now lies at a crossroads. One direction points toward the giant strides in productivity, industry concentration, and product diversification. Another direction points toward the dangers of environmental degradation and the marginalization of small fish farmers. Yet another direction invites aquaculture to champion the poor and provide vital environmental services to stressed aquatic environments. 'Changing the Face of the Waters' offers a cutting-edge analysis of the critical challenges facing aquaculture, balancing aquaculture's role in economic growth with the need for sound management of natural resources. The book also provides guidance on sustainable aquaculture by evaluating alternative development pathways, placing particular emphasis on the application of lessons from Asia to Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America. Aimed at policy makers, planners, and scientists, this book provides a comprehensive frame of reference for orienting ideas and initiatives in this dynamic industry.

This Royal Commission report on protection of the marine environment focuses on the impact of marine fishing in the seas around the UK, both on fish populations and the wider ecosystem. It consider a range of issues including the role of the fishing industry and its growth over the last 50 years; the legal framework for the marine environment and fisheries, at the national, European and international levels; the impact of fishing and the legacy of overfishing; aquaculture fisheries; marine protected areas; improved fisheries management; and a system of marine spatial planning. The report concludes that, as a society, we give much lower priority to protecting our seas compared with the land, and over-fishing is a global problem which has led to the collapse of fisheries in many areas. This situation requires significant urgent change which recognises the need for sustainable fisheries management and avoids the degradation of our seas, placing it within the context of wider management of human activities in the marine environment. Recommendations made include: the introduction of a Marine Act to establish a statutory framework with strategic objectives for marine environmental protection; a move away from a presumption in favour of fishing rights to a precautionary approach which requires demonstration that fishing activity is environmentally sustainable; establishing a network of marine protected areas within the UK over the next five years, which would lead to 30 per cent of the UK's exclusive economic zone being closed to commercial fishing; and a change in the emphasis of research away from management of fish populations towards a wider focus on the marine environment.

This comprehensive handbook provides a global overview of ocean resources and management by focusing on critical issues relating to human development and the marine environment, their interrelationships as expressed through the uses of the sea as a resource, and the regional expression of these themes. The underlying approach is geographical, with prominence given to the biosphere, political arrangements and regional patterns – all considered to be especially crucial to the human understanding required for the use and management of the world's oceans. Part one addresses key themes in our knowledge of relationships between people and the sea on a global scale, including economic and political issues, and understanding and managing marine environments. Part two provides a systematic review of the uses of the sea, grouped into food, ocean space, materials and energy, and the sea as an environmental resource. Part three on the geography of the sea considers management strategies especially related to the state system, and regional management developments in both core economic regions and the developing periphery. The primary themes within each chapter are governance (including institutional and legal bases); policy – sets of ideas governing management; and management, both technical and general.

The first volume to thoroughly address health concerns in the aquaculture industry Aquaculture-farming aquatic plants and organisms-is one of the fastest growing sectors of agriculture, yet attention to aquaculture health concerns has not been equal to the rate of the industry's expansion. Public, Animal, and Environmental Aquaculture Health Issues serves as a valuable guide to new enterprises, regulatory agencies, and government agencies that are concerned with safe, controlled aquaculture development. The majority of aquaculture products pose no significant health risk; however, like traditional farming operations, aquaculture has associated risks to employees, animals, the environment, and the consumer. This book addresses potential unanticipated risks from the perspectives of both industrialized and nonindustrialized countries, as well as how to mitigate these risks. Chapters include: * Status of World Fisheries and the Role of Aquaculture * Aquaculture Associated Public, Animal, and Environmental Health Issues in Nonindustrialized and Industrialized Countries * Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point and Aquaculture * Aquaculture and International Trade Regulations * Future Considerations of Global Aquaculture Aquaculture business owners, managers, producers, manufacturers, research and academic scientists, government officials, consultants, and food safety specialists will find Public, Animal, and Environmental Aquaculture Health Issues to be a valuable addition to their professional libraries.

This book focuses on incorporating the elements of adaptability and sustainability in aquaculture for changing the course of its development towards the ecosystem approach. The contents have been structured to justify the importance of forging synergies of aquaculture with other methods of seafood production for addressing the challenges and meeting the production targets. With the stabilization of capture fisheries, there is no alternative to aquaculture in seafood security, and this requires changing the course of production methods. The book contains synthesis of information on current practices and the wisdom of capitalizing on gains from established practices, and identifies new areas for reforms in chartering the way forward. It suggests the need for new models of development that evolve in an innovation ecosystem for accelerating the merger of time-tested approaches with the modern knowledge deeply rooted in environmental compatibility. Written with a collective wisdom of distinguished authors from different parts of the world and including some topics that have not been covered in aquaculture books for reasons of their new-found significance are among the important hallmarks of this book. Students and researchers will find this book a useful source of information and policy makers might want to read it for a possible paradigm shift.

The continued expansion of aquaculture – in a wide range of environments and of a growing number of species has lead to increasing demands on aquatic resources. These demands vary with the culture species, the culture method and the environmental and ecological setting. While there are many examples of efforts to mitigate detrimental environmental effects, the environment remains the ultimate constraint on the future sustainable development of this maturing industry. The relationships between the activities of aquaculture and the environment are therefore of economic importance as well as of scientific interest and, for these reasons, a large international research community has developed over the past decade. In this volume, the resultant research is synthesised and critically reviewed, providing a source of reference to the most important recent developments at research and professional level. The authors are internationally recognised authorities who have made significant contributions to their respective research areas. The first part of the volume is organised in terms of the major culture types. This is followed by chapters of general relevance to aquaculture. The volume is designed to complement Biology of Farmed Fish (eds K D Black/A D Pickering), also published in this series. It is directed at fish biologists, shellfish biologists and environmental scientists working in the academic, governmental and industrial sectors.

This volume presents a representative sample of contributions to the 41st European Marine Biology Symposium held in September 2005 in Cork, Ireland. The theme of the symposium was ‘Challenges to Marine Ecosystems’ and this was divided into four sub themes; Genetics, Marine Protected Areas, Global Climate Change and Marine Ecosystems, Sustainable Fisheries and Agriculture. The world’s marine ecosystems face multiple challenges, some natural, but many resulting from humankind’s activities. Global climate change, driven by influences of energy usage and industrial practices, is a reality now accepted by most of the world’s scientists, media and political establishments. Warming seas and rising sea levels are regarded as threats, while visionaries consider deep ocean carbon disposal as a technological opportunity. Exploitation of the seas continues apace, with repeated concerns over the impact of over-fishing, plus reservations about the environmental effects of marine aquaculture. We need to understand how resilient organisms and ecosystems are to these challenges, while responding by protecting biologically-meaningful areas of the oceans. The subthemes of the 41st European Marine Biology Symposium address all of these matters.

Inland fisheries are vital for the livelihoods and food resources of humans worldwide but their importance is underestimated, probably because large numbers of small, local operators are involved. Freshwater Fisheries Ecology defines what we have globally, what we are going to lose and mitigate for, and what, given the right tools, we can save. To estimate potential production, the dynamics of freshwater ecosystems (rivers, lakes and estuaries) need to be understood. These dynamics are diverse, as are the earthï¿1⁄2s freshwater fisheries resources (from boreal to tropical regions), and these influence how fisheries are both utilized and abused. Three main types of fisheries are illustrated within the book: artisanal, commercial and recreational, and the tools which have evolved for fisheries governance and management, including assessment methods, are described. The book also covers in detail fisheries development, providing information on improving fisheries through environmental and habitat evaluation, enhancement and rehabilitation, aquaculture, genetically modified fishes and sustainability. The book thoroughly reviews the negative impacts on fisheries including excessive harvesting, climate change, toxicology, impoundments, barriers and abstractions, non-native species and eutrophication. Finally, key areas of future research are outlined. Freshwater Fisheries Ecology is truly a landmark publication, containing contributions from over 100 leading experts and supported by the Fisheries Society of the British Isles. The global approach makes this book essential reading for fish biologists, fisheries scientists and ecologists and upper level students in these disciplines. Libraries in all universities and research establishments where biological and fisheries sciences are studied and taught should have multiple copies of this hugely valuable resource. About the Editor John Craig is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Fish Biology and has an enormous range of expertise and a wealth of knowledge of freshwater fishes and their ecology, having studied them around the globe, including in Asia, North America, Africa, the Middle East and Europe. His particular interests have been in population dynamics and life history strategies. He is a Fellow of the Linnean Society of London and the Royal Society of Biology.
