Paddlefish have become of increasing interest to the aquaculture community in recent years, as a potential new source of food and caviar. Native to North America, paddlefish show great promise both domestically and internationally as a commercially viable farmed species.
Paddlefish Aquaculture examines all aspects of the biology and culture of these fish, exploring their physiology, production, end products and the economics underlying a successful paddlefish operation. Chapters specifically cover paddlefish biology, propagation and early culture techniques, production for meat and caviar, international culture and history, paddlefish food products, bioaccumulants of contaminants in paddlefish, parasites and diseases, and the economics of paddlefish aquaculture.
