New Book...

Fish Ponds in Farming Systems
Throughout the last century, specialisation and intensification were buzz words for farmers in the Western world. However, this approach has not resulted in sustainable development. This book demonstrates that an alternative exists.

* This Week's Feature Articles

We have 5 new features this week:

Harmonising Nature and Technology with Aquaponics
Born from the abstract philosophy of ecocentric ideals, aquaponics has emerged at the very frontier of agricultural technology. Yet, many years after the modern concept was first realised it has yet to receive the commercial recognition that might unlock its true potential, writes Adam Anson, reporting for TheFishSite.
Species Protection and Conservation
Fish farming can contribute to the protection and restoration of endangered fish populations living in the wild through the efficient provision of juveniles for release or stocking, says a report in the Consensus Towards Sustainable Aquaculture in Europe publication.
Caligiasis In The Chilean Salmon Farming Industry
Caligiasis is a parasitic disease which affects marine fish in Chile. The parasite is endemic and is located in the skin where it feeds from the mucus of the affected fish, says Maria-Jose Birrer (Intervet Chile Ltd.)
Shrimp Market Report - January 2009
Europe and Japan experienced a noticeable drop of their shrimp imports, while the US market expanded slightly, says an FAO Globefish report.
China Fishery Products Annual 2008
China's aquatic production in 2009 is forecast at 49.5 MMT, up two percent from the estimated 48.6 MMT in 2008, says a USDA Foreign Agricultural Service report.
