Customer reviews

The increasing interest in pond fish farming, as well as in fish production and rural development, raises the need for up-to-date information on this subject. This 4th edition provides the most up-to-date information available, the result of experience in the field, combined with bibliographic data concerning the different aspects of pond fish farming in Europe. The major chapters deal with: design of earthwork production ponds and related structures (drainage systems, fishing grounds and storage tanks); water quality management. Experience in the field has shown that plankton monitoring (density and quality) is a better indicator of the state of the food chain than the normal measurements of dissolved N and P; the biology of the different species of pond fish and reproduction techniques (from spawning to fry rearing) applicable to carp, goldfish, tench, roach, gudgeon, pike, pike-perch, perch, black-bass and European catfish (plus Chinese carp); fish pathology and diseases, as well as practical information on prevention and treatments. Additional data are presented in the numerous annexes.
