HAGFISH [hagfish] primitive marine fish of the order Cyclostomata, or jawless fishes (see cyclostome), of worldwide distribution in cold and temperate waters.

The aquaculture industry and its government supporters say that fish farming makes good economic sense and is not an environmental threat.
Critics of the industry want salmon farming stopped; they say it pollutes the ocean waters and is unsustainable, that farmed fish will spread disease to wild fish and escaped fish will displace wild salmon.
In this book, Peter Robson explains the biology and the effects of salmon farming, using a balanced approach supported by up-to-date information to shed an objective light on this important and contentious subject.
