Shellfish Aquaculture and the Environment is the first book to focus primarily on the issues surrounding environmental sustainability of shellfish aquaculture. Environmental sustainability is of increasing importance to industry personnel and consumers, and is one of the key issues that underpin the continued growth of the aquaculture industry. This timely and essential reference provides readers with a single source reference on this important issue. Shellfish Aquaculture and the Environment provides readers with the most current data available on key topics, such as resource enhancement, habitat restoration, eutrophication, the impacts of shellfish farms on water quality, and harvest methods. The authors also discuss shellfish aquaculture and the environment from both industry and agency perspectives. The book also provides invaluable information for those looking to develop and implement environmental best management practices. Edited by one of the world's leading shellfish researchers and with a global team of contributors, Shellfish Aquaculture and the Environment will be the definitive source of information for this increasingly important topic
