Sustainability and Management of Aquaculture and Fisheries

H.D. Kumar (Author)

Sustainable water management, food security and water security being some of the most critical issues facing the world in the 21st Century-dubbed the “Century of Water” – this monograph outlines various options for proactive management of fisheries and aquaculture to sustainably meet the growing food requirements of millions of people living in developing countries both in rural areas and in cities. Both freshwater and marine fisheries are covered. Besides giving production statistics calculated by various organizations, the book lists traditional as well as potentially promising newer organisms suitable for aquaculture in swamps, ponds, marshes, lakes and mangroves not only as a source of nutritious food but also as employment avenues for small- scale or marginal fisherfolk. The book can serve as an introductory text for courses in fisheries and aquaculture both in traditional universities and in marine and freshwater institutes.
