THE SEA'S HARVEST: The Story of Aquaculture by Joseph E. Brown

THE SEA'S HARVEST: The Story of Aquaculture

Email this review


Although Brown predicts great sea ""ranches"" worked with the help' of porpoise ""cowboys,"" this actually focuses on the more limited prospects for commercial aquaculture in the near future. . . and on the obstacles that stand in its way, chiefly pollution, but also high costs and our limited knowledge. Brown surveys various research projects and a few established ventures in the U.S. and Japan--artificial reefs; fish farms; the raising of oysters, mussels and shrimp; kelp harvesting. A utilitarian presentation, but straightforward and factual, and the most thorough we've seen.
