Fishing News Books, Oxford. 2 General Principles Peter Appleford, John S. Lucas and Paul C. 1 General aspects A large number of aquaculture practices are not treated systematically in any other chapter of this book and hence they are considered here. There are differences in the structures used, the intensities of culture, the degree of water exchange and the factors to be considered in selecting suitable species and farm sites for aquaculture.

Based on data from FAO (1995), modified from Tacon (1996). • metabolic wastes excreted and faeces released by the organism; • energy expenditure on reproduction; • energy released into the environment as heat, because metabolic processes are not 100% efficient. These substantial declines in energy with each step in the food chain have an obvious implication for aquaculture; it is more efficient to culture primary producers or animals that feed at a low stage in the food chain. This is an important factor in developing nations, where aquaculture products are valued as a major source of animal protein and are cultured for food security rather than export trade.

This growth is mainly in the lowvalue fish species such as carp and related species. There will continue to be most growth in the developing countries where the political and cultural environments are more conducive to new and expanding ventures in aquaculture. As well as future expansion in quantity and value of aquaculture products, it is likely that significant new industries will develop based on new species. The very 1 / Introduction rapid developments of pangasid aquaculture in Vietnam and of whiteleg shrimp aquaculture in Thailand are examples of the potential for new industries.
