Sustainability has become an important concept in fisheries science and aquaculture. Aquaculture is a rapidly growing, successful approach to improving diets by providing more high-quality fish and shellfish protein. At the same time, it is a major industry with negative impacts on the environment. This book explores new methods with fewer environmental impacts.
