Includes bibliographical references

Defines and reviews certain practices that are shared between aquaculture and capture fisheries. Specifically considers the on-growing or fattening of four species groups - eels, groupers, tunas and yellowtails - which is based on the use of wild-caught "seed". Begins with an introduction on the overlap between aquaculture and fisheries and their global trends. Chapters on the four species groups follow and include information on species identification, fishery trends, the supply and transfer of "seed" for stocking purposes, aquaculture trends, culture systems, feeds and feeding regimes, fish health, harvesting and marketing. Further chapters examine the environmental and socio-economic impacts of capture-based aquaculture, together with the relevant fisheries and aquaculture management issues, and food safety issues.
