Grade 4-7-- While Koch's text can be repetitious in spots, and occasionally vague enough to leave readers wondering, among other things, where these ``farmers'' get ``seed'' for their crops, it is still informative, covering material not available in existing titles. Information boxes focus on specifics, such as farming squid for scientific research. The book has many excellent full-color photos and a couple of life-cycle diagrams. The author explores the history of aquaculture, discusses what life forms make good crops and why, and describes the various forms these sea-farms take--from simple stakes and baskets to elaborate and extensive corrals and net formations. A final chapter looks at the scientific investigations under way into the future of mariculture and its benefits. Most of the books for further reading are adult materials or out-of-print. As many books aimed at children date back 20 years or more, this is an attractive, approachable replacement (much delayed) to some sadly out-of-date volumes. --Patricia Manning, Eastchester Public Library, NY
