[T]his offering is a mini-encyclopedia on shellfish . . . that any . . . may want in their library.
Good Tidings, indeed! In her book, Barbara Brennessel has assembled a wealth of information into an accurate overview of the shellfish aquaculture industry in the northeast. Thorough enough to serve as a text for an aquaculture course but also written in a style easily understood by the general public, this is a book I will recommend to anyone wanting to learn more about the growing, green industry of shellfish farming.
--Rick Karney, Shellfish Biologist/Director, Martha’s Vineyard Shellfish Group
Barbara got her hands dirty (and wet) researching this book, and it shows! If you're interested in what it takes to grow an oyster or raise a clam, this book is for you.
--Bill Walton, Fisheries & Aquaculture Specialist, Cape Cod Cooperative Extension & Woods Hole Sea Grant
