CONDITIONING AND SPAWNING BOOK
CONDITIONING, SPAWNING & REARING FISH WITH EMPHASIS ON MARINE CLOWNFISH.
Not your typical aquarist hobby book that is full of pictures but, contains very little information. Our book is a full fledged professional presentation yet written so all can understand. Author, Frank Hoff, is considered a aquaculture pioneer with over 35 years experience in aquaculture. Emphasis is on closed system commercial culture of tropical marine fish with emphasis on Amphiprion (clownfish). Information includes work done on other marine fish including pompano, black sea bass, redfish and freshwater species including discus and angelfish. Includes: utilization of live and prepared foods, broodstock management and conditioning, oocyte analysis, utilization of hormones and conditioned spawning, hatching, broodstock management, tank selection, system designs, larval rearing, juvenile grow-out, theory and practice, data gathering and analysis, trouble shooting, cost analysis and future fish culture endeavors. Published August 1996. Page format 8.5″ x 11″, 64 tables, 67 figures and 25 photos. A must for fish breeders, fresh or saltwater, and serves as a companion manual to the Plankton Culture Manual (VA-FAF1)
