'...this book is essential reading for marine ichthyologists! (The reviewer is certainly delighted to have a copy on his shelves.)...the book is full of useful information; it is quantitive, well written and well produced. It has an extensive bibliography, subject and species indexes, and a glossary. ...it should find a ready market with individual scientists as well as libraries.' Fisheries Research ' ...it contains a wealth of information obtained from an impressive array of sources...very useful reference text for researchers and advanced students of fish development and culture of these early and critical stages in fish. I predict that it will become a well-used reference text for postgraduate students in Aquaculture...a very useful text...easy to read...a good investment.' Aquaculture
