Aquaculture practices in Taiwan.

Abstract

The book describes the aquaculture methods applied to 29 species of marine and freshwater animals in Taiwan. The freshwater species include the mollusc Corbicula fluminea, and several fish (e.g. eel, carp and tilapia). The production from aquaculture in Taiwan in 1974 was about 114 500 t, representing 16.4% of the total fisheries production. Each chapter is concluded by literature references (mainly in Chinese).
