About this book

Focuses on the physiology of tuna with respect to biomechanics, thermoregulation and morphology from an evolutionary and phylogenetic perspective. Because of the economic importance of tuna, a secondary focus of the book will be on tuna aquaculture and conservation.

The Fish Physiology Series has set a very high standard of quality from its first volume published in 1969 ... and has become increasingly more focused in their subject treatments. -Copeia
