This book contains up-to-date information about marine aquaculture that has been developing rapidly in Turkey since the last decade. The important aspect, however, is to make it sustainable without considering management and protection of the stocks as well. This aspect is considered through new production techniques that have succeeded for new species and new market demands.
Each chapter in the book presents current situations, new ideas, specific species, trends of consumption, added-value products, blue growth and economy, sectoral milestones of aquaculture, and several issues.
Turkey has been a focus for two reasons. First, fish farming is a necessity for Turkey because it produces healthy protein for the population and it provides economic security to millions of people who are working in the industry. The second one is because of the long coastline of Turkey, which results in a competitive aquaculture scene, signaling towards the need for Turkey to be more
ambitious in investing in new strategies and species, such as the Trout in the Black Sea. However, whilst considering aquaculture from these scopes, we must be careful in considering the challenges of aquaculture and sustainability.
One of the threats for the aquaculture industry has been in the past few years and will be a massive obstacle in the future is climate change. This will have serious implications for the fisheries and aquaculture sector, and thereby for food security and the livelihoods of millions of people. Thus, this book also attempts to suggest ways to make the sector collaborate with the environment that it is working with.
Finally, I would like to thank all authors who contributed to this book with their effort, namely their time and extent of knowledge, as well as their continuous passion for sustainable aquaculture all around Turkey. Additionally, I would like to send my gratitude to the editors who have spent hours revising and editing works to make a high-quality scientific book.
