"ORNAMENTAL FISH FARMING”
"The small, medium and large scale breeding and marketing of freshwater tropical fish and goldfish.”
by Brian Andrews 2011.
Review by Eddie ootell
Brian Andrews has written this book for the professional and semi-professional fish breeder as his main targeted market, but amateur fish keepers and hobby breeders will find this book of immense value and interest. I think this is the first book ever published on commercial fish keeping that explains all the details, which are usually kept secret for commercial reasons by other authors. Rick Datodi has written a foreword in support of this publication.
I would go so far as to say, that all serious aquarists, including the retail sector, should have this book in their reference library as it is of immense value to all aquarists.
Brian is one of the very few who was able to breed tropical fishes on a large scale. He has done this in both South Africa and here in Australia, making a living doing what he loved.
This book will give the reader his breeding techniques for a large number of fishes that he successfully bred for the Australian wholesale market.
The book is 21cm by 30 cm, and consists of 525 glossy paper pages which have descriptive, full coloured photos, (some by well known aquatic life photographer Neil Armstrong), plus diagrams and many charts.
The book is divided into the following main headings and within each heading, full details are provided for the aquarist.
1: Fundamentals of commercial breeding.
2: Operating styles, strategies and facilities.
3: Production methods.
4: Setting up for spawning.
5:Introducing the breeders.
7: Care of eggs.
8: Care of pre-feeding larvae.
9: Rearing fry from first feed to about two months.
10: Grow-out to sellable size.
11: Harvesting, packing and shipping.
Fish farming techniques, Water chemistry, Disease management, Marketing are all covered.
Another excellent area that is fully explained in detail is the food section.
All the foods and their advantages, plus recipes, are fully explained.
Aquarists will find the detailed section on live foods and their cultivation as invaluable.
Everything that we fish-o-philes wanted to know is here.
Full details are given for each subject, much more for the reader than can be covered here. Details of some specific fish species are given for the various groups.
I personally, have not come across such great information in such a handy, readable form anywhere, and I thoroughly recommend it for any Aquarist’s library.
Cost, including freight is about $134 at the time of this review (Jan 2012)
Only available direct from, Brian Andrews.
