Experts are predicting that demand for marine fish oil will soon outstrip supply, creating extreme urgency within the global aquafeed industry to find viable alternatives. Fish Oil Replacement and Alternative Lipid Sources in Aquaculture Feeds is the first comprehensive review of this multifaceted, complex issue. It also addresses the crucial questions about whether or not the industry will be able to meet increasing worldwide demand for fisheries products.
The First & Only Book Specifically Addressing this Issue
With contributions from more than 30 international experts, the book provides a global perspective on the production, rationale, and use of fish oils, vegetable oils, and animal fats in relation to the aquaculture and aquafeed industries. After a detailed discussion on alternative lipid sources, the book discusses groundbreaking research on the use of these lipid sources as fish oil substitutes, as well as their potential advantages and challenges for use in aquafeeds.
Written by Leading Scientists & Industry Authorities
Rounding out its solid coverage, the book then explores the important physiological effects of various lipid sources and their components on growth, lipid metabolism, health, and postharvest qualities of the farmed fish. Both timely and pertinent, Fish Oil Replacement and Alternative Lipid Sources in Aquaculture Feeds is the most authoritative and comprehensive review on the substitution of fish oil in aquaculture feeds addressing the issues, science, and future directions of using sustainable alternatives.
Within the space of just over 500 pages … this book provides a comprehensive overview on the production and use of fish oils, vegetable oils, terrestrial animal fats, and several unconventional lipid sources in finfish aquaculture and the aquafeed industry. All chapters are tightly packed with factual information, and all are also extensively referenced, with quite a strong emphasis on recently published review articles, original papers, and reports. … The overall structure of the book has been well thought out, and the chapters follow in a logical sequence, making it relatively easy for the reader to find a clear path to follow. … Fish Oil Replacement and Alternative Lipid Sources in Aquaculture Feeds is a most useful compilation … . The book presents key, up-to-date information about the importance of lipid nutrition in finfish aquaculture, and about the availability and use of oil sources in the production of aquafeeds. Its main advantage is that the information is collected in a single volume, so the book is likely to become a standard source of reference for fish nutritionists and other aquaculture professionals.
