As the world’s population continues to grow, so does the demand for seafood. Technological advances have enabled shrimp farming to change from traditional, small-scale businesses into a global industry. This has contributed to problems with serious disease outbreaks, which have already caused several regional wipe-outs of farm shrimp populations. The shrimp farming industry continues to grow and there is a need for a source of reliable and detailed information on shrimp farming, best practice and new developments, aimed at the shrimp industry, to facilitate future sustainable growth of the industry. While The Shrimp Book, published in 2010, was written from the academic perspective, The Shrimp Book II’s focus is towards the industry perspective.
