Very usefully, the FAO have launched an online glossary of aquaculture terms, available in English, French, Spanish, Arabic, and Chinese.
This multidisciplinary glossary has been prepared by the Inland Water Resources and Aquaculture Service (FIRI) of FAO Fisheries Department, under the coordination of Valerio Crespi.
The primary objectives of this glossary are
- to serve as a reference to fish farmers, consultants, administrators, policy makers, developers, engineers, agriculturists, economists, environmentalists and anybody interested in aquaculture; and
- to facilitate communication among experts and scientists involved in aquaculture research and development.
