VSPN Review by Oreta M. Samples, RVT, MPG, DH Star
(Click on stars for an explanation)

This is an unusual book that addresses the field of engineering as pertains to the growing field of aquaculture and entails in-depth presentations of schematics of how to build and utilize aquaculture units for the purpose of raising fish commercially. So, we have a book with chapters entirely devoted to pipes, water flow control, pumps, filtration, water sanitation and preservation of healthy living environments for a variety of fish and other aqua-inhabitants. The most engaging thing about this book remains the schematic drawings and photographs which illustrate how to become a “pseudo-aquatics engineer”. Because this book will likely have a narrow audience among the veterinary technician crowd, it garners a 3 of 5 star rating, however if you are in fact looking for detailed instructions on how to install a condenser when utilizing a heat pump along with a circulation circuit driven heat exchanger – well this is the book for you.
