2017. 28cm. Pp.352. Colour photos, figures. Softbound.

Providing a broad and readable overview of the subject, this updated third edition of Aquaculture: An Introductory Text covers issues associated with sustainable aquaculture development, culture systems, hatchery methods, nutrition and feeding of aquaculture species, reproductive strategies, harvesting and many other topics. While its main focus is on the culture of fish, molluscs and crustaceans for food, the book also covers other forms of aquaculture, such as the production of seaweeds, recreational fish and ornamental species, and live foods such as algae and rotifers that are used to feed larval shrimp and marine fish.

- Increased coverage of species under culture
- Increased scope to cover species for enhancement, recreational fishing, commercial fishing and aquaria
- Newly developed culture systems
- Information on predictive impacts of climate change
- Updated aquaculture production statistics

Aquaculture remains one of the most rapidly growing agricultural disciplines and this book remains an essential resource for all students of aquaculture and related disciplines.

Biology and Management of Coregonid Fishes - 2011, Wanzenböck, Josef & Ian J. Winfield (editors)
197 Wanzenböck, Josef & Ian J. Winfield (editors) Biology and Management of Coregonid Fishes - 2011
3510470664 / 9783510470662 New
 
2013. 26cm. Pp.ix, 376. 107 figures, 52 tables, 3 appendices. Softbound.

This volume provides a well-balanced overview of most of the contemporary research on coregonid fishes presented at the 11th Inter­national Symposium on the Biology and Management of Coregonid Fishes, held September 26–30, 2011 in Mondsee, Austria. These symposia on the Biology and Management of Coregonid Fishes have a long tradition. Since the first meeting took place in 1969, experts in coregonid biology have now met eleven times in Europe or North America.

This present volume is therefore the continuation of a long series of symposium proceedings, most of which have been published in Advances in Limnology. Within this context, the considerable advances that research has made over the years in understanding this fascinating group of teleost fishes are apparent in this volume.

Coregonid fishes are widely distributed across the northern hemisphere in an enormous variety of different forms. Many aspects of the biology of these fishes are similarly variable and are reflected in the first section of this volume. It begins with a topical review of population dynamics of whitefish in European Alpine lakes, includes several contributions related to fisheries and also embraces aspects such as migration behaviour, distribution and habitat, physiological performance, morphological variability, otoliths and cell morphology. The section contains contributions from eight countries, namely Germany, Canada, Estonia, Finland, Poland, Russia, Sweden and the USA.

The second section is devoted to evolutionary ecology and genetics. Six articles from Austria, Latvia, Norway, Russia and the USA give a timely overview of current research on the differentiation of populations, hybridisation, genetic variability and diversity.

Some populations and habitats of coregonids are endangered by the excessive exploitation and pollution of freshwater ecosystems. Even protected areas run the risk of being affected by climate change and its consequences and these issues are the focus of the third section on conservation. It comprises five articles from the UK, the USA and Norway.

The present volume continues with the original, integrative idea which formed the basis of the first symposium held in 1969, i.e. to provide an open and encouraging forum for researchers working on this remarkable group of fishes, to bring them together and to promote exchange across all sorts of boundaries. By doing so, it provides new impetus for the continuing research into coregonid as well as general fish biology.

Fisheries Management. A Manual for Still-water Coarse Fisheries, Wellby,  Ian ; Ash Girdler & Robin Welcomme
199 Wellby, Ian ; Ash Girdler & Robin Welcomme Fisheries Management. A Manual for Still-water Coarse Fisheries
1405133325 / 9781405133326 New
 
2010. 26cm. Pp.416. Hardbound.

The correct management of freshwaters and their fisheries is vital to ensure environmental protection and an appropriate level of stocking densities of healthy fish in designated angling water bodies.

Fisheries Management. A Manual for Still-water Coarse Fisheries, which is aimed primarily at fisheries managers and those considering buying or building lakes for fisheries, provides detailed information which is essential for all those involved in the area.

The contents of this very useful and comprehensive book have been written by practising fisheries managers and scientists and include basic principles in fisheries ecology, in management and in fish stock assessment. Chapters also include coverage of how conditions can be improved and fisheries enhanced through the use of nutrient management, habitat improvement and conservation, with important case study details included. Chapters on fisheries and the law and business best management practices are also included.

Reproductive Biology of Teleost Fishes, Wootton, Robert J & Carl Smith
202 Wootton, Robert J & Carl Smith Reproductive Biology of Teleost Fishes
0632054263 / 9780632054268 New
 
2014. 26cm. Pp.496. Hardbound.

Reproductive Biology of Teleost Fishes is the first integrated review of the reproductive biology of the bony fishes, which are the most species-rich and diversified group of vertebrates.

Teleosts display remarkable variation in their modes of reproduction, and this volume is intended to provide a framework for understanding the remarkable reproductive diversity of this group. It describes their reproductive biology using, wherever possible, phylogenetic analyses and life-history theory as a means to interpret the information. The book addresses the genetic, physiological, behavioural, ecological, evolutionary and applied aspects of teleost reproduction in a comparative framework that emphasises the adaptive basis of reproductive diversity.

Reproductive Biology of Teleost Fishes provides a comprehensive synthesis of fish reproduction that will be of great interest to life scientists, particularly ecologists, evolutionary biologists, physiologists and advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and research workers requiring a comprehensive overview of fish reproduction. The book is suitable for courses in fish biology and ecology, reproductive physiology and reproductive genetics. It also addresses applied questions and will be of value for courses on fisheries science and aquaculture. Libraries in all universities and research establishments where biological sciences, fisheries science and aquaculture are studied and taught should have several copies of this important book on their shelves.
