Cold Smoking and Salt Curing Meat, Fish and Game
by A. D. Livingston. Paperback, 168 pages (1995)

With this book, Livingston combines a lifetime of Southern culinary knowledge with his own love of authentic home smoking and curing techniques. He teaches how to prepare smoked and salted hams, fish, jerky, and game - adapting today's materials to yesterday's traditional methods. As the author writes, "you can smoke a better fish than you can buy, and you can cure a better ham without the use of any chemicals except ordinary salt and good hardwood smoke." This book shows you how, and includes complete instructions for: preparing salted, dried fish; preparing planked fish, or gravlax; building a modern walk-in smokehouse; constructing small-scale barbecue smokers; choosing woods and fuels for smoking; and salt-curing country ham and other meats, together with over 50 recipes such as Country Ham with Redeye Gravy, Canadian Bacon, Scandinavian Salt Fish, Venison Jerky, and many others.

Fish Drying and Smoking: Production and Quality
by Peter E. Doe (Editor). Hardcover, 250 pages (1998)

This book explains the current and traditional fish smoking and drying practices in terms of the basic underlying principles of biochemistry and food technology. Readers will soon become aware of the discrepancies between the basic scientific knowledge and modern technology on one hand, and the traditional processes described in some chapters. This book bridges that gap. The emphasis in this book in on the critical factors which affect the quality of products produced in less technological cultures-products which have been largely neglected in technically advanced countries-and on developments and innovations which have occurred in the last five years. The critical factors affecting the quality of fish products in technically advanced countries have been summarized. The answers to questions on the quality of smoked, cured and dried fish can be found from an understanding of the physical, chemical, and biological factors influencing the functionality of the product at every stage of its preparation and subsequent handling from the time the fish is harvested to the time it is eaten.

The 2000-2005 World Outlook for Dried, Salted and Smoked Fish
by The World Research Group. Ring-bound, 125 pages (2000)

It concisely compiles a variety of official and proprietary information in a format that allows the reader to quickly benchmark a country vis--vis its region and the world as a whole. While attention has been made to provide the most recent information available. In addition, the information presented in the report is compiled from various government agencies (e.g. local ministries), international organizations (e.g., the World Bank, the United Nations), and national authorities (e.g. the Central Intelligence Agency, the U.S. Department of State or Commerce).
This publications provide timely and reliable market information as a complement to strategic planning processes. For a price well below the cost of a round-trip business-class ticket, the executive has access to the basic factors driving strategic planning. As such, the report is a 'one-stop' shop by giving coverage on economic and political issues, as well as analyzing human resources, entry strategies and legal risks.

Virus Alarm:

A new virus has just been discovered that has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive ever! This virus simply destroys Sector Zero from the hard disk, where vital information for its functioning are stored. This virus acts in the following manner: It sends itself automatically to all contacts on your list with the title "A Virtual Card for You." As soon as the supposed virtual card is opened, the computer freezes so that the user has to reboot. When the ctrl+alt+del keys or the reset button are pressed, the virus destroys Sector Zero, thus permanently destroying the hard disk. In just a few hours this virus caused panic in New York, according to news broadcast by CNN. This alert was received by an employee of Microsoft itself. So don't open any mails with subject: "A Virtual Card for You." As soon as you get the mail, delete it.
Also, Intel announced that a new and very destructive virus was discovered recently. If you receive an email called "An Internet Flower For You," do not open it. Delete it right away! This virus removes all dynamic link libraries (.DLL files) from your computer. Your computer will not be able to boot up!

Standard Methods for Examination of Water & Wastewater by Arnold E. Greenberg et al. Hardcover (1999).
The bible of water analysis and THE book of standards! Comprehensive testing of all major pollutants, giving precise instructions for proceedures, preparation of studies as well as current reference data.
Every conceivable method for the chemical, biolgical and physical analysis of fresh, brackish and seawater, biological contaminants and pollutants, are covered in detail. Includes sampling techniques, statistical methods, laboratory apparatus and reeagents, safety setup and calibrations, determination of general water quality parameters, metals, automated analysis, toxicity tests for aquatic organisms,  aquatic botany (inclusive plankton sampling), and a special section on the identification of aquatic organisms with color plates.
Now in its 20th edition, this text presents significant improvements of methodology and enlarged its scope to include techniques suitable for examination of many types of samples encountered in the assessment and control of water quality and water pollution.

Analysis of Solids in Natural Waters by Thomas R. Crompton. Hardcover (1996).
The presence of toxic organic and inorganic substances in rivers and oceanic sediments is in part due to man-made pollution. Their monitoring by chemical analysis of oceanic, estuarine, and river sediments or of organisms living in the respective ecosystems are of utmost importance. The purpose of this book is to provide the chemist with all available information for the rapid development and proper carrying out of these methods of analysis. Crompton's book is the first book which covers all kinds of samples including living organisms.

Water Quality Control Handbook by E. Roberts Alley. Hardcover (2000).
This handbook is intended to provide industrial, governmental, and consulting environmental practitioners a quick reference guide to all major areas of water pollution control. Among the topics discussed are the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of wastewater; monitoring, sampling, and testing methods; the modeling of the effects of pollutants on the environment; effective management, including the establishment of policies and proper documentation; applicable water pollution regulatory standards; and the theory, design recommendations, and practical suggestions for various water pollution control systems.

Pond Aquaculture Water Quality Management by Claude E. Boyd et al. Hardcover (1999).
The only hope of supplying the world's ever-increasing demand for aquatic food products is through aquaculture, and the vast majority of this is conducted in ponds. Although pond aquaculture may appear at first to be an archaic method of growing aquatic animals, it is one that is consistently profitable when the pond is managed properly. The most important aspect of pond management is the maintenance of adequate environmental conditions for good growth and health of the animal under culture. Water quality in ponds also extends into the areas of environmental protection and food quality and safety, which are increasingly important in today's world. This book provides the most complete, up-to-date account of water quality and its management in aquaculture ponds. It provides background information on the physical, chemical, and biological environment of pond aquaculture, and illustrates how the proper balance of these factors is the essential ingredient for successful production of fish and other aquatic animals. Management techniques for the control of water quality and productivity include liming, fertilization, mechanical aeration, water exchange, and the use of algicides and herbicides. The authors examine the effects of pollution on aquaculture and the validity of current criticisms by environmentalists. This book will be of great benefit to students, extension agents, policy-makers, government officials and the commercial aquaculture industry.

Hope to welcome you in Verona at the Acquacoltura International,
