Spawn, Spat and Sprains: A Manual for Aquaculture Safety in Alaska
Jerry Dzugan and Dan Falvey

This is the only book on the market that describes the dangers faced by shellfish farmers and salmon hatchery workers at the aquaculture worksite, and tells how to reduce the chance of injury. Marine safety experts wrote the manual in response to numerous requests from the industry. Chapters include physical and chemical hazards, proper lifting techniques, airplane and boat safety, basic first aid, electrical hazards, fire fighting, cold water survival, and coping with bears.
