The book entitled “Freshwater Aquaculture” incorporates 10 (Ten) Chapters which deals with practically almost all the sectors of Freshwater Aquaculture and contain an uptodate informations and throws some light on the future line of research likely to be undertaken in the respective field of freshwater aquaculture. The authors hope that the book will be a welcome addition because it would serve the long needed requirement of the scientists, teachers and extension workers engaged in this field. The volume will be well received in the Fisheries Colleges and Research Institutes of the country where teaching, research and extension of freshwater Aquaculture are being undertaken and it will prove to be a valuable compendium.
