Recirculating Aquaculture

I would like to introduce my new book entitled: Recirculating Aquaculture. This replaces my previous book entitled: Recirculating Aquaculture Systems which is now out of print. The original textbook was used as the primary resource for the Cornell University Short course which I started in 1994 and an undergraduate course on recirculating aquaculture principles in 1985. The new book has been expanded roughly by 200 pages. We added a new chapter on denitrification (by Dr. Jaap vin Rijn) a

    This review is from: Recirculating Aquaculture (Hardcover)

    Recirculating Aquaculture by M.B. Timmons and J.M. Ebeling (editors) describes all aspects pertaining to the culture of fish and other aquatic organisms in closed recirclating systems. It provides the engineering information needed to design and build systems wherein fish are reared under high densities. While most fish reared commercially have been reared in ponds because it is generally cheaper, there is a trend to rear higher value species in recirculating aquaculture systems. The book covers all aspects from system design, to filtration, solid waste removal,aeriation, the role of bacteria for nitrification and denitrification, disease control etc. Some in the industry see closed systems aquaculture as being like rearing chickens under high densities. Tilapia has been touted as the next mass produced aquaculture product because they can be reared athigh densities, provided water quality is maintained. A less energy intensive type of recirculating aquaculture that raises both fish and vegetables in recirculating system is aquaponics. Chapter 19 by Dr. James Rakocy of the University of the Virgin Islands pertains to the floating raft aquaponics system that he designed. Other groups have copied this system in various parts of the USA and abroad. Hence, many of the people who buy this book will do so specifically to learn about aquaponics. This is a large book (975 pages). It may be too technical for those without some scientific training. It is the bible for those interested in recirculating aquaculture systems (which is the title of two earlier editions of the same book).
