From the Back Cover:

Aquaculture is one of the fastest growing primary industries in the world. Tropical Mariculture, the cultivation of organisms in warm marine waters, is developing areas as greater demands are placed on the production of aquatic food from traditional resources. This volume edited by De Silva is the first to address the development of mariculture in the tropics, and brings together chapters written by world experts in the field. Overview chapters discuss the conceptual framework while individual chapters address issues associated with the development of a new primary industry, and give detailed examples of cultivated species in the tropics.
