The Rising Tide, edited by Drs. Craig L. Browdy (Novus International, Inc., firstname.lastname@example.org) and Darryl F. Jory (Global Aquaculture Alliance and Aquatic Ecosystems, Inc., email@example.com), is the proceedings of the World Aquaculture Society’s Special Session on Sustainable Shrimp Farming in Veracruz, Mexico (September 2009). It contains 316 pages and 28 papers, each with a long list of references. Many of the papers have charts, tables and black and white photos. The Editors divided the papers into five sections.
The first section focuses on genetics and breeding. Papers target a selective breeding program for Penaeus monodon, a review of the transformational successes stemming from development and breeding of specific pathogen free strains of Litopenaeus vannamei, strategies for protection of valuable genotypes from unlicensed breeding, and the development of a robust breeding program in Brazil.
Section two addresses health management. Some of the latest emerging disease issues and status of diagnostic techniques are expertly reviewed, including histopathological changes that may be associated with inclusion of melamine in shrimp feeds. In addition, contributions in this section provide important information on potential, practical and proactive tools for assuring shrimp health. The authors provide contrasting viewpoints on opportunities and constraints associated with bacterial additives for probiotic and pond water amendment applications.
Section three targets the area of nutrition and feeds. The first paper reviews some recent advances in shrimp hatchery feeds and culture technologies. The majority of the contributions in this section summarize a very wide body of literature from a broad array of sources, providing current information on alternative protein sources for fishmeal extension or replacement. In addition to the comprehensive reviews, chapters also specifically target rendered proteins and use of seaweeds in shrimp feeds. A thorough review of micronutrients in shrimp diets provides the latest practical information on inclusion levels of key vitamins and minerals.
Section four, the largest, provides the latest information on current production technologies. The first paper presents a review of shrimp aquaculture development in Mexico, the host country for World Aquaculture 2009. Next, a compilation of information is provided on nursery technologies, including some of the latest information on intensive juvenile production techniques. The third paper provides a practical summary of feeding programs and techniques. The next two papers provide reviews on the theory and engineering of aeration systems for intensification of shrimp production. The section culminates with three extensive papers on super-intensive, biofioc-based systems technologies with detailed reviews of some of the latest results from the Oceanic Institute and the Waddell Mariculture Center. Detailed data on the functioning of these high-density systems provides practical know-how for growers applying biofioc strategies for intensive pond production. Similarly, the chapter on financial analysis provides important insights into areas where improvements in efficiencies can yield the greatest payback for producers.
The last section covers shrimp markets and certification.
