Abstract
    Marine Ornamental Shrimp provides a global overview of the biology, culture, and conservation of the major families of marine ornamental shrimp. Coverage in this thorough volume includes ecological aspects, reproductive biology, major techniques used in culture systems for maturation, larviculture, and juvenile growth, and details of the main conservation issues surrounding these important species, including a discussion of the negative aspects of wild specimen collection and the ongoing efforts to mitigate such impacts.
