the physical, chemical, and biological processes that interact in pond culture systems;
and the economic, social, and environmental impact of such systems. Includes
studies of fish diseases, reproduction, climate and site, pond design, pond bottom soils,
attributes of pond-cultured fish, growth and production, computer applications,
experimental design and analysis, and developing technology.

Based on a decade
of research in Africa, Asia, and Central and North America by the Pond
Dynamics/Aquaculture Collaborative Research Support Program (CRSP), not only explains the
physical, chemical, and biological processes that interact in pond culture systems, but
also presents real-world research findings and considers the people who depend on these
systems. Booknews, Inc.

Kenneth Black, Alan Pickering
by Matthew Landau
This landmark volume
considers the biology underlying fish culture, focusing on developments over the last
decade. The chapters, written by biologists who have made outstanding contributions
to the research literature, draw on examples from a range of species around the
world. The approach adopted is generic - ordered according to life-stage or
discipline, rather than according to species. This volume therefore complements the books
available dealing with single species or groups.
Although the science of
aquaculture has been around for centuries, it has only recently attained popularity.
Introductory text for a college or university course covers a wide spectrum
of aquaculture-related topics and, because many different fields play a part in
aquaculture, includes sections on history, economics, law, engineering, chemistry and

About Hydraulic Ram Pumps
by Don R. Wilson
How to grow $500,000 on one acre, and Peace on Earth
by Anna Edey
The author, D.R. Wilson, 1997
I use one of these ram pumps at my home for all my water! Years
ago when I moved to a remote cabin, there was no electricity available. There
was a spring nearby to get water from, but it had to be carried to the cabin.
I knew this had to change, so I began to research alternatives. This was
before there were any 'alternative energy' stores or catalogs. Eventually I
found some info about 'ram pumps' which looked promising. That was many
years ago and the ram I built then has gone through many changes. This book
contains plans for the design that evolved through trial and error. The Atlas
Ram is now simpler and cheaper to build, and more reliable and efficient than
The publisher, , 1998
A great book on how to live sustainably on Earth. This book is
about one woman's sacred vision and commitment to learning to live sustainably on Earth.
Since 1976 Anna Edey has made one astonishing discovery after another (how to
heat and cool with solar power, how to grow exceptionally high yields of highest quality
organic foods year-round without heating fuel or cooling fans, how to manage sewage in
ways that benefit the landscape and reduce water pollution, etc) under the name Solviva
Solar-Dynamic Bio-Benign Design.

Aquaculture Development Handbook
by David Blakely, C. Hrusa
A thorough understanding of freshwater
fisheries management is vitally important for all occupiers and managers of freshwater
fisheries. Without a working knowledge of fisheries management valuable assets can be
wasted or underdeveloped. The second edition, like the first, is essentially a practical
guide for anyone involved in freshwater fisheries management in the temperate regions.
Reviewer: A reader from
Nashville, Tennessee, 1999
Amazing, I didn't think anybody else shared my passion for inland
aquaculture until I read this most informative book. If only more people would
read and implement the advice Mr. Blakely offers us, the world would be a much fishier
the Sustainability and Biological Integrity of Water
by Thomas Simon
and Water Resource Management
by Donald Baird, John Muir, Liam Kellyl
This book examines the application of
fish community characteristics to evaluate the sustainability and biological integrity of
freshwaters. Topics include perspectives on use of fish communities as environmental
indicators in program development, collaboration, and partnership forming; influence of
specific taxa on assessment of the IBI; regional applications for areas where the IBI had
not previously been developed; and specific applications of the IBI developed for
coldwater streams, inland... & more
Comprises eight papers
addressing a range of scientific and management issues drawn from the international
conference Aquaculture and Water Resource Management, held at the University of Stirling
in June 1994. Topics cover aquaculture as a growing global activity due to dwindling
natural stocks; a systems and sustainability perspective for aquaculture and the
environment; problems arising from waste output from intensive aquaculture; aquaculture's
effects on species interaction. Booknews, Inc.
Every aspect of this growing field is covered
from descriptions of aquatic plants and animals to in-depth coverage of the economics and
management of the aquaculture industry. Extensive coverage of water requirement
nutritional fundamentals and diseases common to aquaculture are included.
