Do you know your fish Inside/Out?

Understanding the structure of fish both inside and out is hugely important when it comes   to addressing routine management practices and the challenges of daily operations.

The first point of contact with these challenges is the skin, gills and digestive tract (or gut) of   the fish. The success of any aquaculture business depends largely on the animal's health status and its ability to efficiently convert its feed into body mass. The health and structural    integrity of the skin, gills and guts plays a vital role in this process as well as ensuring defense against disease.

Written by aquaculture specialists John Sweetman and Gijs Rutjes, 'Inside Out: The Essential Guide to the Skin, Gills and Guts of Fish', is an educational tool for fish farmers, feed millers, and anyone interested in aquaculture. Designed to offer a user-friendly insight into how these tissues work, so you can make informed decisions to reach optimal           performance from your fish. Being passionately curious is an essential element of good management, resulting in improved efficiency and profitability on farm.
