- Extensive coverage of basic and applied research on all
aspects of marine, freshwater, and brackish water organisms
and environments, including information on biology
and ecology, exploitation of living
resources, and related legal, policy, and socioeconomic issues.
Since natural resources are an important feature,
fisheries receive particular attention, including the latest fishing
methods, statistics, aquaculture, food technology, productivity,
conservation, and marketing. Covers 1971 to the present.
Aquaculture Abstracts (ProQuest)
- Covers the science, practice, management, and economics
of marine and freshwater aquaculture, including
the improvement and augmenting of aquatic yields,
instruments, technological developments, culturing techniques, and new methods of
husbandry. Includes references from related disciplines such as water pollution, ecology,
diseases, nutrition, oceanography, and limnology.
Covers 1984 to the present.
Marine Biotechnology Abstracts (ProQuest)
- Covers the molecular biology and molecular genetics of marine biotechnology
in such fields as the increased production of seafood,
the development of new therapeutic drugs, the
engineering of microbes that digest and remove environmental and
marine pollutants, and the launching of myriad ventures having
immense economic benefit. Includes patents, aquaculture/fisheries,
chemical/mineral products, energy applications, and more.
Covers 1989 to the present.
