Sea urchins and sea cucumbers are highly sought after delicacies growing in popularity globally. The demand for these species is rapidly outpacing natural stocks, and researchers and seafood industry personnel are now looking towards aquaculture as a means of providing a sustainable supply. Echinoderm Aquaculture is a very practical reference on the basic biology and current culture practices for a wide range of geographically diverse echinoderm species.
This textbook covers the basic ecology and biology of sea urchins and sea cucumbers as well as the breadth of uses of these organisms as a source of food and bioactive compounds. Subsequent chapters delineate the specific species of interest in various geographic regions from around the world and provide a comprehensive coverage of aquaculture practices.
