About this book

Focuses attention on muscle from the genetics of muscle development to application of muscle growth patterns to aquacultural production.

The major strength of Muscle Development and Growth is the range of material covered, from muscle pattern formation in zebrafish to temperature acclimation effects on muscle physiology. The book should succeed in stimulating new interest in fish muscle development and growth. -COPEIA (2001)
