As the joint effort of more than 100 aquaculture scientists in three years’ time, a book in English titled Aquaculture in China: Success Stories and Modern Trends was published by Wiley Blackwell last month, introducing successful stories and future trends and strategies of aquaculture in China.

This 700 pages book covers a wide range of topics mainly focusing on aquaculture practices and relevant techniques. Scientists from Institute of Hydrobiology (IHB) of Chinese Academy of Sciences contribute to six chapters which detail China's integrated rice-field aquaculture, crucian carp and gibel carp culture, crayfish cultivation, feed developments in freshwater aquaculture, applications of genetic breeding biotechnologies, and so on.

With important academic and practical value, this book will benefit aquaculture scientists as well as farmers, and will be translated into Chinese in the near future.

"Aquaculture in China faces arduous tasks and challenges in the new era," said ZHANG Xianliang, Director General of Bureau of Fisheries under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, “This book will facilitate the transformation, upgrading and supply-side structural reform of aquaculture industry in China."

"This landmark publication will be useful to every one and all involved directly in the development of the aquaculture and related sectors not only in China but globally,” said Dr. Sena S De Silva, a professor of Deakin University, and one of the editors of the book.

"The cases in the book will contribute to policy making and the sustainability of the industry in other countries, especially in countries along the Belt and Road," said ZAHNG.
