The global rise in the production of farmed fish and shellfish in non-industrialized countries has been supported by aquaculture research aiming most often to solve problems for factory-like production of highly valued aquatic species. It can be observed however, that research at the small-scale aquafarmers' level is lagging behind. Research with the holistic farming systems perspective and farmers' participation offers a chance to support aquaculture production at the small-scale farmers' level in non-industrialized countries. © 1995 Chapman & Hall.
