Marine oils: from Sea to Pharmaceuticals

the title of this post is the title of the book that is going to be published in the next few weeks by Nova Science Publishers
and I had the pleasure to edit.
The book is about the fish we eat, fish that not only sustains us but also provides us with pleasure and well-being. 
Fish is also a valuable source of nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals
We follow a holistic approach in this book viewing fish in its entirety from the food that fish need in order to grow through to the pharmaceutical applications of fish oil.
We address within this book the issue of resource management, fish nutritional requirements, aquatic food security, nutritional value of marine oils and fish themselves as well as to how we can further exploit marine oil usage in the production of nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals.
