9780971264656: Recirculating Aquaculture, 3rd Edition

Typically recirculating (closed) aquatic production systems have higher capital and operating costs than many of the extensive systems such as cage culture in natural waters and raceway and/or pond culture systems. However, when the control provided by recirculating systems and the benefits this environmental control provides in terms of marketing, waste control, product quality, product availability, and other factors are considered-- then recirculating systems become much more attractive. Thus, this text is designed primarily for recirculating systems, which the authors feel will be the systems of choice for most new aquaculture ventures. Much of the information provided in this text does, however, also apply to open, semi-closed, and closed systems in terms of tank design, hydraulics, fish management, water quality, etc. The objectives of this text are the practical application of aquacultural engineering and how to design, construct, and manage an aquatic production system. It provides the reader with essential information necessary to get started in aquaculture production and it emphasizes practical information rather than in-depth theoretical discussions. It does not provide the reader with information on genetics, basic biology, marketing, and all of the other areas important to development of a successful aquaculture operation. Many of these topics are touched on in the text, but are presented only in sufficient detail to allow the reader to understand the relationship of each of these aspects to production of fish. There is no attempt to present in-depth discussions of these topics. Rather the object is to provide sufficient information so the reader can: 1) look at a system and make a good judgment as to how well the systems will operate, 2) work with a systems designer to develop an aquatic production system of your own, and 3) know what to look for when shopping for aquacultural production systems.

About the Author:

Michael B. Timmons, Ph.D. Dr. Timmons received his B.S. in Agricultural Engineering from the Ohio State University, his M.S. in Agricultural Engineering from the University of Hawaii, and his Ph.D. from Cornell University. Dr. Timmons has worked in aquacultural engineering for 25 years as a researcher, teacher, and extension specialist. He has published widely and has served as primary editor on many of the Aquacultural Engineering Society meeting proceedings and for the series of bi-annual meetings sponsored by Virginia Tech on Water Recirculation Systems. He was one of the founders of the Aquacultural Engineering Society and has served in several officer positions including President. Dr. Timmons was a J. Thomas Clark Professorship of Entrepreneurship and Personal Enterprise (1999-2006) at Cornell University where he is still a professor in the Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering. Dr. Timmons has been a principal investor (he put his house on the line!) in the design, construction, and operation of a commercial recirculating tilapia farm (~500 tons per year of production) and thus provides the viewpoint of a commercial aquaculturist in addition to his experience as a researcher and extension specialist. You can contact Dr. Timmons by email, mbt3@cornell.edu.

James M. Ebeling, Ph.D. Dr. Ebeling has a B.S. and M.S. in physics from Albion College in Albion, Michigan and Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, respectively. He has a second M.S. in agricultural engineering from Washington State University and has three years of formal training at the University of California, Davis in aquacultural engineering. He obtained his Ph.D. in Biological Resources Engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland, where he worked on the kinetics of biofilters operating on aquacultural systems. In November 2006, James was selected as a Fulbright Senior Specialists Candidate (Council for International Exchange of Scholars, Washington DC) Dr. Ebeling has been involved in aquaculture for over 25 years and has cultured over 20 species of fish. He spent three years at the Mariculture Research and Training Center, University of Hawaii as a research coordinator, and one year as project manager for the design and construction of the Fish Barn at the North Carolina State University. Dr. Ebeling also spent five years as a research and extension associate at the Piketon Research and Extension Center, Ohio State University, Piketon, Ohio where he was responsible for design, construction, and maintenance of the aquaculture facilities and for maintaining the fish as well as for the Center Aquaculture Extension Program. He spent six years at the Conservation Funds Freshwater Institute as an Environmental Research Engineer, working in basic and applied research as well as the application of monitoring and computer control to biological and aquatic ecosystems. Most recently, Dr. Ebeling was employed as a Research Engineer by Aquaculture Systems Technologies, LLC, New Orleans, LA, conducting research as part of several Small Business Innovative Research grants on denitrification, waste management and system engineering and design. Currently, Dr. Ebeling is a semi-retired aquaculture engineer, who immigrated to Tucson Arizona in 2012. E-mail: JamesEbeling@aol.com.

Review:

Dear Dr. Timmons, In fact, I had been thinking about congratulating you since about the time I started reading your wonderful book, Recirculating Aquaculture, a couple of months ago. However, something or the other always came up and delayed my resolve. Today, I have the honor of conveying to you, what I really mean and feel about your book. The one word which could sum up this extraordinary book, should be Bible of RAS . This book is NOT just an academic exercise, but it is a practical and prudent guide to the Nuts and Bolts of a Venture called Recirculating Aquaculture System. It is a vital Reference Book for all those who intend to pursue research and development of RAS as an academic exercise. However, it is a MUST read for entrepreneurs, bankers, investors, accountants and government officials- those who intend to believe in Recirculating Aquaculture Technology or simply put a 21st century answer to Sustainable Aquaculture with highest productivity. There are nineteen chapters in the book and each chapter is a benchmark in itself, especially the Rule of Thumb. The clarity of thought and experiment could not be closer!! Dr. Timmons, you have rendered a yeoman service to the entrepreneurs of RAS. I would recommend to each and everyone, who care to undertake RAS, to read chapter 17. It is about the real perspective of RAS as a new venture. This chapter will be thoroughly appreciated equally by a start up entrepreneur to a seasoned businessman. In fact, your personal experience in running a commercial operation has given you an in-depth knowledge, while sharing those without inhibitions make this book absolutely out of the ordinary and truly a Guide. The chapter nineteen deals with Aquaponics, comes as a silver lining to an all encompassing , no-nonsense, extraordinarily prudent , brilliant book on a subject that is beholden to provide answer to the critical problem of 40% shortage of animal protein requirement of over 7 billion homo sapiens by 2020. In my opinion, Recirculating Aquaculture is going to set the standards for future writers intending to write books on subjects as intense as advanced technologies. In that sense, this book is a Trend Setter. Once again, please accept my heart-felt congratulations on writing such a brilliant and full-of wisdom book.

Recirculating Aquaculture by M.B. Timmons and J.M. Ebeling (editors) describes all aspects pertaining to the culture of fish and other aquatic organisms in closed recirclating systems. It provides the engineering information needed to design and build systems wherein fish are reared under high densities. While most fish reared commercially have been reared in ponds because it is generally cheaper, there is a trend to rear higher value species in recirculating aquaculture systems. The book covers all aspects from system design, to filtration, solid waste removal,aeriation, the role of bacteria for nitrification and denitrification, disease control etc. Some in the industry see closed systems aquaculture as being like rearing chickens under high densities. Tilapia has been touted as the next mass produced aquaculture product because they can be reared athigh densities, provided water quality is maintained. A less energy intensive type of recirculating aquaculture that raises both fish and vegetables in recirculating system is aquaponics. Chapter 19 by Dr. James Rakocy of the University of the Virgin Islands pertains to the floating raft aquaponics system that he designed. Other groups have copied this system in various parts of --Peter, I copied from the earlier edition

Chapter 19 by Dr. James Rakocy of the University of the Virgin Islands pertains to the floating raft aquaponics system that he designed. Other groups have copied this system in various parts of the USA and abroad. Hence, many of the people who buy this book will do so specifically to learn about aquaponics. This is a large book (975 pages). It may be too technical for those without some scientific training. It is the bible for those interested in recirculating aquaculture systems (which is the title of two earlier editions of the same book). --Peter, I copied from the earlier edition
