Summary "This publication is a compendium of information on every aspect of the farming of freshwater prawns, an industry now with an annual global farm-gate value approaching US$ 2 billion." "Freshwater Prawns builds on New and Valenti's 2000 book, Freshwater Prawn Culture, which has been completely re-written to incorporate all the most recent information available. It is a comprehensive review of the status of research, development and commercial practice, intended to stimulate further advances in knowledge and understanding of this important field."
"The comprehensive information in Freshwater Prawns: Biology and Farming will give an important commercial edge to anyone involved in the culture and trade of freshwater prawns. Prawn farm personnel, business managers, and researchers in aquatic invertebrates, crustaceans, aquaculture and biological sciences, will all find much of great use and interest within this book. Libraries in all research establishments and universities where aquaculture, fisheries and biological sciences are studied and taught should have copies of this book."--BOOK JACKET
