This report looks at small-scale aquaculture from the viewpoint of poverty reduction. What are the main factors that enable fish farming to generate livelihoods and reduce poverty? Based on case studies, the first part of the report highlights the importance of access to capital assets--human, social, natural, physical, and financial--and to a range of transforming processes, such as markets, institutions, facilities, infrastructure, and services.

Pond Aquaculture Water Quality Management provides the most complete, up-to-date account of water quality and its management in aquaculture ponds. It provides background information on the physical, chemical, and biological environment of pond aquaculture, and illustrates how the proper balance of these factors is the essential ingredient for successful production of fish and other aquatic animals. Management techniques for the control of water quality and productivity include liming, fertilization, mechanical aeration, water exchange, and the use of algicides and herbicides. The authors examine the effects of pollution on aquaculture and the validity of current criticisms by environmentalists. Pond Aquaculture Water Quality Management will be a great benefit to students, extension agents, policy-makers, government officials and the commercial aquaculture industry.

In 1979, several graduate students in the Department of Fisheries and Allied Aquacultures at Auburn University met with one of the authors (CEB) and asked him to teach a new course on water supply for aqua culture. They felt that information on climatology, hydrology, water distribution systems, pumps, and wells would be valuable to them. Most of these students were planning to work in commercial aquaculture in the United States or abroad, and they thought that such a cdurse would better prepare them to plan aquaculture projects and to communicate with engineers, contractors, and other specialists who often become involved in the planning and construction phases of aquaculture en deavors. The course was developed, and after a few years it was decided that more effective presentation of some of the material could be made by an engineer. The other author (KHY) accepted the challenge, and three courses on the water supply aspects of aquaculture are now offered at Auburn University. A course providing background in hydrology is followed by courses on selected topics from water supply engineering. Most graduate programs in aquaculture at other universities will even tually include similar coursework, because students need a formal intro duction to this important, yet somewhat neglected, part of aquaculture. We have written this book to serve as a text for a course in water supply for aquaculture or for individual study. The book is divided into is concerned two parts.

This book is a single convenient source of information that covers priority areas of research in channel catfish aquaculture. Recent Developments in Catfish Aquaculture compiles some of the latest research in the field as presented at the Catfish Research Symposium. The editors present a diverse collection of chapters that illustrates recent research efforts in catfish culture and shows the scope of research that is being conducted in nutrition, genetics, water quality management, economics, fish health, and pond production systems. Some of the contributing authors’chapters are developmental but many contain information that can be immediately applied to commercial situations to improve production efficiency. A variety of subjects are covered in this catfish resource, including: Health Issues: immunology, vaccination, selection, drug evaluation, nutritional causes Genetics: hybridization, selection Hatchery Management: new techniques to incubate eggs; control of fungus on developing eggs; evaluation of mechanical graders Production Economics: comparison of different approaches Water Quality: discovery and identification of an algae that kills catfish; off-flavor; water circulators Nutrition: effects of feed on growth and fattiness of fish; nutritionally induced health problems Food Technology: impedance microbiology for evaluation and safety of processed catfish Behavior: behavioral interactions and feeding behavior Recent Developments in Catfish Aquaculture shows the paradox that exists in catfish farming research. On one hand, extremely sophisticated research is being used to solve complex problems. On the other, the basic method of raising catfish has not yet been determined. Several chapters describe important new developments in the field and will lead to important breakthroughs and developments in the future. This volume is required reading for those conducting catfish research or catfish culture, including university and federal aquaculture researchers as well as students. They will find it useful as a reference guide, and catfish farmers will find it helpful as a guide to recent advances in production technology.
