About this Book

The collapse of many of the World's fisheries continues to be of major concern and the enhancement of fish stocks through techniques such as ranching is of huge importance and interest across the globe. This important book, which contains fully peer reviewed and carefully edited papers from the 2nd International Symposium in Stock Enhancement and Sea Ranching is broadly divided into sections covering the following areas:



  • The present situation of stock enhancement
  • Seed quality and techniques for effective stocking
  • Health management of hatchery stocks
  • Methods for evaluating stocking effectiveness
  • Population management in stock enhancement and sea ranching
  • Management of stocked populations
  • Ecological interactions with wild stocks
  • Genetic management of hatchery and wild stocks
  • Socio-economics of stock enhancement
  • Case studies


Stock Enhancement and Sea Ranching has been written and edited by some of the world's foremost authorities in fisheries science and related areas and is essential reading for all fisheries scientists throughout the World. Fish biologists, marine and aquatic scientists, environmental biologists, ecologists, conservationists, aquaculture personnel and oceanographers will all find much of use and interest within this book. All libraries within universities and research establishments where these subjects are studied and taught should have copies of this book on their shelves.
