The first attempt to critically review in a single volume all associations of fishes with invertebrates, other fishes, and aquatic reptiles and mammals based on the latest studies in these areas, together with studies published many years ago and little cited since then.

Symbiosis in Fishes provides comprehensive coverage of the biology of partnerships between fishes and organisms, ascending the phylogenetic scale, from luminescent bacteria, sponges and coelenterates to molluscs, crustaceans and echinoderms, other fishes, aquatic reptiles and mammals. Both facultative and obligatory partnerships are reviewed with emphasis on the behavioural, ecological and evolutionary aspects of fish symbiosis. Each of the eight chapters of this book focuses on a different group of partners. The structure, physiology and anti-predatory strategies of each group are described to provide the necessary background for the understanding of their partnerships with fishes. The formation of the associations, the degree of partner specificity and its regulation, as well as the benefits and costs for the fishes and their associates, communication between partners and their possible co-evolution are discussed in each chapter.
