Success Factors for Fish Larval Production, Conceicao, Luis E.C. & Amos Tandler
1 Conceicao, Luis E.C. & Amos Tandler Success Factors for Fish Larval Production
1119072166 / 9781119072164 New
 
2017. 28cm. Pp.500. Colour photos & figures, tables, bibliography. Hardbound.

This important new book reviews our current understanding of larval biology, including how external (environmental and nutritional) and internal (molecular/ developmental/ physiological/ behavioral/ genetic) factors interact in defining the phenotype and quality of fish larvae and juveniles.

The detailed coverage within Success Factors for Fish Larval Production includes broodstock genetics and husbandry, water quality, larval nutrition and feeding, growth physiology, health, metamorphosis, underlying molecular mechanisms for development, larval behaviour and environmental conditions.

The book also discusses the research needs and the available tools to:

• improve egg quality and larval production via broodstock management and nutrition
• control the phenotype of juveniles and table-size fish via manipulations of the conditions of larval rearing (phenotypic plasticity);
• reduce high mortality in fish larvae
• control the growth rate independent of a larval batch
• overcome the limited digestive capacity in first feeding larvae
• optimize diet composition, formulation and technology
• minimize skeletal abnormalities
• improve disease and stress resistance in fish larvae.

Success Factors for Fish Larval Production also reviews research and commercially applicable larval quality indicators and predictors, including their integration into IT-based prediction matrices.

This book will be of great use and interest to fish biologists, developmental biologists, physiologists and zoologists. All those working in fish aquaculture facilities and hatcheries will find much of great interest and commercial use within this book. All libraries in universities and research establishments where biological sciences, aquaculture and fisheries are studied and taught should have copies of this book on their shelves.

Essential reference.

Metamorphosis in Fish, Dufour, Sylvie ; Karine Rousseau & B. G. Kapoor

2012. 28cm. Pp.270. Hardbound.

Metamorphosis in Fish gathers current data on the two types of fish metamorphoses and their endocrine controls. It will be of interest for fish biologists as well as comparative physiologists and endocrinologists.

Metamorphosis is a major developmental phase characterized by morphological and physiological changes. It prepares organisms for a drastic shift in habitat and behaviour. Among vertebrates, besides the well-known larval metamorphosis in amphibians, two types of metamorphosis are also described in the life cycle of some fish species.

Larval metamorphosis, also called first metamorphosis or true metamorphosis, is encountered in lampreys, representative species of basal vertebrates as well as in some teleost groups, elopomorphs and pleuronectiforms, and possibly also in some other teleost species. Secondary metamorphosis occurs in juveniles of some diadromic migratory teleosts, such as salmons and eels, and compared to larval metamorphosis, involves less drastic morphological changes.

1578083885 / 9781578083886 New
 
2008. 26cm. Pp.742. 26 colour photos, figures. Hardbound.

Fish Larval Physiology aims at providing a single-volume treatise that explains how fish larvae develop and differentiate, how they regulate salt, water and acid-base balance, how they transport and exchange gases, acquire and utilise energy, how they sense their environment, and move in their aquatic medium, how they control and defend themselves, and finally how they grow up.

It is intended as a resource for students and researchers interested in developmental biology and physiology and specifically addresses the larval stages of fish. Fish larvae (and fish embryos) are not small juveniles or adults. Rather they are transitionary organisms that bridge the critical gap between the single celled egg and sexually immature juvenile. Fish larvae represent the stage of the life cycle that is used for differentiation, feeding and distribution.

Beach-Spawning Fishes: Reproduction in an Endangered Ecosystem, Martin, Karen L. M.
8 Martin, Karen L. M. Beach-Spawning Fishes: Reproduction in an Endangered Ecosystem
1482207974 / 9781482207972 New
 
2014. 26cm. Pp.223. 10 colour plates, 43 figures. Hardbound.

Beach-spawning fishes from exotic locations on most continents of the world provide spectacular examples of extreme adaptations during the most vulnerable life cycle stages. The beauty, intriguing biology, and importance of these charismatic fishes at the interface of marine and terrestrial ecosystems have inspired numerous scientific studies. Adaptations of behavior, physiology, development, and ecology are gathered together for the first time in this book.

Beach-Spawning Fishes: Reproduction in an Endangered Ecosystem is a comprehensive guide to beach spawning, a charismatic animal behaviour that is seen in a surprising number of teleost species. This unexpected form of reproduction provides a window into the ecology of coastal areas, the behaviours and physiology necessary for fishes and their eggs to adapt to terrestrial conditions, and the threats and challenges for conservation and management. Beach-spawning species include important forage fishes such as the capelin, exotic fishes such as the fugu puffer, and the spectacular midnight runs of the California grunion.

1578087996 / 9781578087990 New
 
2012. 28cm. Pp.220. Hardbound.

Genetic Sex Differentiation in Fish provides a comprehensive elucidation of the sex differentiation of gonochoric and hermaphroditic fishes, and examines sex chromosomes and sex determining genes, sex differentiation genes and steroid receptor genes, stem cells and germ cells. It emphasizes the need to search for more than one sex determining gene residing on different chromosomes, traces the origin of hermaphrodites from secondary gonochores, and explains the conservation of homologous sex differentiation and steroid receptor genes among gonochores and hermaphrodites.

The author highlights that the changes in the phenotypic morphotypes among gonochores are intrasexual but intersexual among hermaphrodites and identifies the optimal broodstock size, the appropriate candidate species for bait and food fishes and recognizes that the fishes do undergo menopause and reproductive senescence, which has an implication on the production of stem cells. He shows that the analysis of steriles and mutants has demonstrated the value of fishes as a system for genetic dissection of human development and diseases.

Keys to Larvae and Juvenile Stages of Coarse Fishes from Fresh Waters in the British Isles, Pinder, A. C
12 Pinder, A. C Keys to Larvae and Juvenile Stages of Coarse Fishes from Fresh Waters in the British Isles
0900386673 / 9780900386671 New
 
2001. 25cm. Pp.136. Colour photos, figures. Paperback.

Keys to Larvae and Juvenile Stages of Coarse Fishes provides a series of keys to the early stages of 'coarse fishes' i.e. non-game fishes, that occur in British fresh waters.

During the first month of free existence, these fishes develop through a number of stages that are difficult for aquatic biologists (and most ichthyologists) to recognise. This difficulty in distinguishing one species from another has led to considerable neglect of these early stages and their impact on the surrounding biota as predators, competitors and prey. Until recently, studies on recruitment in these early stages were also few and far between. This series of keys provides a most necessary tool to assist such studies.

Keys to Larvae and Juvenile Stages of Coarse Fishes comprises keys to five developmental stages of coarse fish : free embryos, young larvae, intermediate larvae, older larvae and young juveniles. Clearly illustrated with line-drawings and colour photographs, it also includes notes on the collection, preparation and preservation of material.

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.
