The IUCN Red List of threatened species includes two of the five giant Mekong species, Pangasianodon gigas (Mekong giant catfish) and Probarbus jullieni (Jullien’s golden carp or seven-striped barb), in the ‘endangered’ class. Two other listed species (Probarbus labeamajor and Probarbus labeaminor) are classified as ‘data deficient’. Although it is not on the IUCN list, the other giant species, Catlocarpio siamensis (Siamese giant barb), is now found rarely in the Mekong. These papers present a summary review of what is known about the biology and ecology of these species, and provide data on their habitats, migration, reproductive biology and life cycles and the results of experiments on artificial breeding.

Guide détermination des poissons du bassin inférieur de l'Ogooué is a systematic guide to the identification of the fishes of the lower Ogooué Basin, Gabon, tropical west Africa. French text.

La publication de ce guide vise d'abord à actualiser les connaissances sur la faune ichtyologique du bassin inférieur de l'Ogooué, elle s'appuie sur les résultats d'un inventaire complet de sa faune ichtyologique réalisé entre septembre 2000 et janvier 2002 ; inventaire qui a été complété par l'examen des collections de poissons (provenant de la région) conservées dans des musées européens et de tous les travaux scientifiques qui ont été réalisés sur la faune ichtyologique de cette région.

Cet ouvrage qui compte 139 espèces regroupées en 44 familles et 84 genres s'adresse en premier lieu aux gestionnaires de la pêche et constitue un outil de base utile et insdispensable à une gestion efficace des ressources halieutiques de la région. Il vise également à sensibiliser l'opinion publique gabonaise, les pouvoirs publics et les ONG qui travaillent dans le domaine de la conservation de la nature et de la biodiversité.

Euryhaline Fishes, McCormick, S.D; A.P. Farrell & C.J. Brauner (editors)
115 McCormick, S.D; A.P. Farrell & C.J. Brauner (editors) Euryhaline Fishes
0123969514 / 9780123969514 New
 
2013. 25cm. Pp.572. Hardbound.

Some fishes are capable of life in both freshwater and seawater. These euryhaline fishes constitute an estimated 3 to 5% of all fish species. Euryhaline fishes represent some of the most iconic and interesting of all fish species, from salmon and sturgeon that make epic migrations to intertidal mudskippers that contend with daily salinity changes. With the advent of global climate change and increasing sea levels, understanding the environmental physiology of euryhaline species is critical for environmental management and any mitigative measures. This volume will provide the first integrative review of euryhalinity in fish. There is no other book that focuses on fish that have the capacity to move between freshwater and seawater. The different challenges of salt and water balance in different habitats have led to different physiological controls and regulation, which heretofore has not been reviewed in a single volume.

2010. 28cm. Pp.xxi,449. Hardbound.

Current synthesis of taxonomic and ecological information on New Zealand’s freshwater fish fauna.

One of the key elements for understanding the origins and derivations of this fish fauna is that in all groups some or all of the species are diadromous, customarily spending a significant phase of their lives at sea. The distribution patterns reflect these changing habits, with diadromous species being broadly distributed but tending to be lowland in range, whereas the derived, non-diadromous species have narrower ranges, but are often found further inland and at high elevations. This book provides an ecological and historical synthesis of these divergent patterns across New Zealand’s geography and history.

Freshwater Fishes of Mexico, Miller, Robert Rush
121 Miller, Robert Rush Freshwater Fishes of Mexico
0226526046 / 9780226526041 New
 
2006. 28cm. Pp.652. 96 colour plates, 314 BW photos, 233 figures, 509 maps, 8 tables. Hardbound.

Though Mexico is only one-fifth the size of the continental United States, it is home to nearly two-thirds as many freshwater fishes as those that swim the waters of the United States and Canada combined. Mexico's diverse freshwater fauna can be attributed to the country's highly varied physical geography, a wide latitudinal range, the largest river system in middle America, and, ironically, its oceans--many marine groups left the brine for the inland springs and never returned to the sea. No one knew these Mexican freshwaters or the fish that inhabit them better than the late world-renowned ichthyologist Robert Rush Miller.

A pioneer of the field, Miller undertook his first field excursion more than fifty years ago and, in the decades following, amassed the information necessary to write the first encyclopedia of Mexican inland ichthyology.

Providing keys to more than 500 native species, accompanied by detailed distribution maps and illustrations, Freshwater Fishes of Mexico offers a historical overview of the country's ichthyology, as well as syntheses of the unique biogeography of Mexican fishes and their current conservation status. Organized by family, the species accounts are supplemented with colour galleries containing photographs of live fishes in their native environments and natural habitats.

Exploring ecological, biological, and taxonomic issues, the book also considers the evolutionary history of the ichthyofauna itself and the human history of the scientists who researched it during the last several centuries. The life's work of Robert Rush Miller.

2015. 26cm. Pp.320. Colour & BW photos, text figures, tables. Hardbound.

Paddlefish have become of increasing interest to the aquaculture community in recent years, as a potential new source of food and caviar. Native to North America, paddlefish show great promise both domestically and internationally as a commercially viable farmed species.

Paddlefish Aquaculture examines all aspects of the biology and culture of these fish, exploring their physiology, production, end products and the economics underlying a successful paddlefish operation. Chapters specifically cover paddlefish biology, propagation and early culture techniques, production for meat and caviar, international culture and history, paddlefish food products, bioaccumulants of contaminants in paddlefish, parasites and diseases, and the economics of paddlefish aquaculture.

2016. 28cm. Pp.752. Text illustrations, bibliography. Hardbound.

Fishes of the World, Fifth Edition is the only modern, phylogenetically based classification of the world’s fishes. The updated text offers new phylogenetic diagrams that clarify the relationships among fish groups, as well as cutting-edge global knowledge that brings this classic reference up to date. With this resource, you can classify orders, families, and genera of fishes, understand the connections among fish groups, organize fishes in their evolutionary context, and imagine new areas of research. To further assist your work, this text provides representative drawings, many of them new, for most families of fishes, allowing you to make visual connections to the information as you read. It also contains many references to the classical as well as the most up-to-date literature on fish relationships, based on both morphology and molecular biology.

The study of fishes is one that certainly requires dedication—and access to reliable, accurate information. With more than 30,000 known species of sharks, rays, and bony fishes, both lobe-finned and ray-finned, you will need to master your area of study with the assistance of the best reference materials available. This text will help you bring your knowledge of fishes to the next level.

-Explore the anatomical characteristics, distribution, common and scientific names, and phylogenetic relationships of fishes

-Access biological and anatomical information on more than 515 families of living fishes

-Better appreciate the complexities and controversies behind the modern view of fish relationships

-Refer to an extensive bibliography, which points you in the direction of additional, valuable, and up-to-date information, much of it published within the last few years.

Fishes of the World, Fifth Edition is an invaluable resource for professional ichthyologists, aquatic ecologists, marine biologists, fish breeders, aquaculturists, and conservationists.
