Fish Nutrition aims to present the state of knowledge of basic and applied nutritional requirements of fishes. Most of the information found in this book involves salmonids, their nutrition, and metabolism of nutrients. This is in view of the fact that more research has been done and completed with this fish. Although applied fish nutrition is a very broad field, this book focuses on some of its aspects. These include the classes of nutrients and requirements for several types of fishes. This book comprises of 11 chapters. The first few chapters deal with the general nutrient requirements of fishes. Then, other chapters discuss calorie and energy as well as micro- and macronutrient needs and requirements. The following chapters deal with the non-nutrient components of the diet, or those that influence the characteristics of food products including texture, odor, flavor, and color. Other topics covered are enzymes and systems of intermediary metabolism (Chapter 6); feed formulation and evaluation (Chapter 7); and salmonid husbandry techniques (Chapter 9). Nutritional fish diseases are also discussed in this book. Some of these diseases include thyroid tumor, gill disease, anemia, lipoid liver degeneration, and visceral granuloma. In Chapter 11, the relationship of nutrition and pathology is given emphasis. This chapter also tackles the diet and general fish husbandry. This topic is very important, because an adequate diet for fish husbandry is the foundation of fish farming.

Nutrition is particularly important in the healthy development offish during their early-life stages. Understanding the uniquenutritional needs of larval fish can improve the efficiency andquality of fish reared in a culture setting. Larval FishNutrition comprehensively explores the nutritionalrequirements, developmental physiology, and feeding and weaningstrategies that will allow aquaculture researchers andprofessionals to develop and implement improved culture practices. Larval Fish Nutrition is logically divided into threesections. The first section looks at the role of specific nutrientrequirements in the healthy digestive development of fish. Thesecond section looks at the impacts if nutritional physiology onfish through several early-life stages. The final section looks atfeeding behaviors and the benefits and drawbacks to both live feedand microparticulate diets in developing fish. Written by a team of leading global researchers, Larval FishNutrition will be an indispensible resource for aquacultureresearchers, professionals, and advanced students. Key Features: Reviews the latest research on larval fish nutritionalrequirements, developmental physiology, and feeding and weaningstrategies Extensively covers nutritional needs of various early-lifestages in fish development Weighs the benefits and drawbacks to both live feeds andmicroparticulate diets Written by a global team of experts in fish nutrition andphysiology

This third edition of Fish Nutrition is a comprehensive treatise on nutrient requirements and metabolism in major species of fish used in aquaculture or scientific experiments. It covers nutrients required and used in cold water, warm water, fresh water, and marine species for growth and reproduction. It also highlights basic physiology and biochemistry of the nutrients and applications of these principles to scientific and practical diet formulations and to manufacturing techniques for major species used worldwide in aquaculture. *Nutrient requirements for dietary formulations for fish farming *Digestive physiology *Comparative nutritional requirements of different species *Fish as unique animals for certain metabolic pathways

Aquaculture is a growing industry. A vital component of the subject is feeding the organisms under cultivation. This book provides a thorough review of the scientific basis and applied aspects of fish nutrition in a user-friendly format. It will be of great use to individuals working or training in the industry, and to fish feed manufacturing personnel.

Using the latest research in fish nutrition, this volume revises and combines the 1981 edition on coldwater fish and the 1983 edition on warmwater fish and shellfish. In addition to updating requirements for energy, protein, minerals, and vitamins, this book provides, for the first time, summary tables on nutrient requirements of a variety of fish species, including channel catfish, rainbow trout, Pacific salmon, carp, and tilapia. Tabular data on amino acid requirements of 11 species are also included. Shellfish are not included in this edition because of lack of scientific information.
