The book emerged as a collaborative effort among three editors with a common interest in salmon aquaculture, but with different perspectives on this important topic. Knut Heen has studied the economic aspects of salmon farming; Robert Monahan has worked on the geographical distribution of various facets of the industry and Fred Utter has extensively researched various biological problems during his long career. Authors of substantial international reputation were invited to contribute specific chapters based on their experience and expertise in various areas relating to salmon aquaculture, and the result is a work which covers the whole subject.
