There are more than six billion people in the world to feed. Fish are an important food source but many kinds of seafood are becoming scarce. This book looks in detail at one solution: fish farming. From egg stripping to fertilisation, hatching trays to small fry, feeding, fish tanks to sea pens and then harvesting. Each step is shown in graphic detail and includes magnificent microscopic photography. At a deeper level Fish Farming is about protecting the ocean environment and finding smart ways to manage the world’s scarce resources.
