A great reference to help anyone involved with aquaculture or aquaponics to make a better choice of what type of fish to grow.  
You can grow a few fish on a tank at home, stock a farm, or convert an above ground swimming pool to grow fish at home and become more self sufficient. There are lots of ways to culture fish, and lots of different fish that can be cultured. Getting the right fish for your conditions is critical though, and that is what this book is all about.

This ebook is ideal for students, hobbyists, small farms or large scale farming.
