The growth in offshore fish farming in the past decade has produced a crucial need to develop engineering solutions to its unique problems. The search for cleaner waters and the need to avoid polluting coastlines, combined with a general desire for expansion, have meant that farmers are constructing farms in ever more aggressive wave environments.

The growth in offshore fish farming in the past decade has produced a crucial need to develop engineering solutions to its unique problems. The search for cleaner waters and the need to avoid polluting coastlines, combined with a general desire for expansion, have meant that farmers are constructing farms in ever more aggressive wave environments. Design guidance for engineers is virtually non-existent - there are no specific standards - and methods adapted from other fields have had limited success. Inevitably interdisciplinary, this book draws on the international experience of engineers and aquaculturalists in an attempt set up a design philosophy.
