Chub mackerel (Scomber japonicus) is a pelagic species which inhabits warm and temperate coastal waters of the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans. The species is of great importance for fisheries worldwide; in 1978, it ranked third in importance in catches by species (3.4 million tonnes), while in 1979 and 1980 it ranked fourth and fifth, with 2.8 and 2.6 million tonnes, respectively. In 1966, the species ranked fifth with a worldwide catch of 2.1 million tonnes. It is mainly caught with purse seines, sometimes using light, and also by trolling, lines, gillnets, traps, beach seines and midwater trawls.

Presented in individual chapters, the species accounts include complete information about each fish's distribution, habitat use, reproduction, development, migratory patterns, prey, and predators and other natural enemies. The species accounts are illustrated and include lifecycle calendars, tables, and charts highlighting key information. Introductory chapters provide the general characteristics of the temperate ichthyofauna and explain the authors' methodology.

Featuring new information based on more than 76,000 samples, novel long-term data, and an exhaustive analysis of more than 1,800 references, this invaluable resource is a complete compendium on estuarine fishes of the Western North Atlantic.

Historical Biogeography of Neotropical Freshwater Fishes, Albert, J.S. & R.E. Reis (editors)
8 Albert, J.S. & R.E. Reis (editors) Historical Biogeography of Neotropical Freshwater Fishes
0520268687 / 9780520268685 New
 
2011. 29cm. Pp.408. Hardbound.

Historical Biogeography of Neotropical Freshwater Fishes explores the evolutionary origins of a unique ecosystem. The chapters address central themes in the study of tropical biodiversity: why is the Amazon basin home to so many distinct evolutionary lineages? What roles do ecological specialization, speciation, and extinction play in the formation of regional assemblages? How do dispersal barriers contribute to isolation and diversification? Focusing on whole faunas rather than individual taxonomic groups, this volume shows that the area’s high regional diversity is not the result of recent diversification in lowland tropical rainforests. Rather, it is the product of species accumulating over tens of millions of years and across a continental arena.

“A major contribution to our understanding of multiple aspects of the Neotropical freshwater fish fauna. The book will be of interest not only to ichthyologists, but also to a broader audience of researchers working on freshwater organisms and general biogeographic patterns.”-- Richard P. Vari, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution.

2006. 28cm. Pp.705. 125 colour illustrations, 65 BW photographs, 130 line illustrations. Hardbound.

Marine fishes have been intensively studied, and some of the fundamental ideas in the science of marine ecology have emerged from the body of knowledge derived from this diverse group of organisms.

The Ecology of Marine Fishes, California and Adjacent Waters provides the first-ever synthesis and interpretation of the large, often daunting, body of information on the ecology of marine fishes. The focus is on the fauna of the eastern Pacific, especially the fishes of the California coast, a group among the most diverse and best studied of all marine ecosystems.

A generously illustrated and comprehensive source of information, this volume will also be an important launching pad for future research and will shed new light on the study of marine fish ecology worldwide. The contributors touch on many fields in biology, including physiology, development, genetics, behaviour, ecology, and evolution. The book includes sections on the history of research, both published and unpublished data, sections on collecting techniques, and references to important earlier studies.

Salmonid Fishes : Population Biology, Genetics and Management encompasses features of genetic processes in complexly organised population systems of salmonids, one of the most commercially valuable families of fish worldwide.

Translated from the original work in Russian, the authors have taken the opportunity to update and revise the work, much of it appearing in the English language for the first time.

Covering such important concepts as optimal gene diversity and the unfavourable influence of fishery and hatchery reproduction on the genetic structure of salmon populations, the authors have drawn together a huge wealth of information that will form the cornerstone of much new work in the future.

30cm. Pp.528. 300 colour photos and figures, glossary, index. Hardbound.

Ornamental Fish Farming is a vast compendium on commercially farming and marketing freshwater ornamental fish and provides a huge amount of essential information designed to be useful to and usable by readers at all levels of ability, from hobbyists seeking to undertake their first spawning of ornamental fish, to fully established fish farm operators. Most importantly, it provides the information needed to progress from beginner to large-scale commercial production, notably including ways to avoid the common pitfalls. Some of the information may also be of value to producers of fingerlings of freshwater food fish, especially in procedures related to larval rearing.

The book provides rarely published techniques for breeding tropical fish and goldfish, all in one publication. Information is given in considerable detail, providing both basic and advanced techniques, written in easily understandable language, with numerous step-by-step procedures for various aspects of fish farming. Included is a comprehensive section on quarantining fish and the use of hormone injection to induce spawning.

Covers 133 species from 14 major commercial families/groups of fish with concise commercial production techniques for each.

1000 copies only.
