Editorial Reviews

`The book is a must for all practitioners of marine (and freshwater) biotechnology, as a compendium of what is becoming possible, and of the remaining obstacles on the road to an environmentally acceptable exponential growth in the exploitation of marine resources for the production of safe products. ... the book is of great interest to practitioners of biotechnology in any other domain, microbial, agricultural, and animal.' Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology, 246 (2000)
