Basic Principles of Fish Growth


Description
The fundamental essence of aquaculture lies in the bodily increase of organisms that are cultivated in time and space, so that this system of biological reasons corresponds in turn with economic and environmental justifications. All the efforts of those who undertake this activity are focused on achieving the increase in weight of the population subject to the imposed feeding conditions.
To understand in a basic way the processes that are carried out during the growth of the fish, this Course has been developed. It is initially based on a general analysis of the aspects that become part of these mechanisms, to later be introduced into those of a practical type that the aquaculturer faces every day.
Its study and assimilation will undoubtedly improve the understanding of this physiological process in which the attention of aquaculturists is focused.
