About this book

Knowledge of the early life stages of fishes is crucial for the effective monitoring and management of fish populations and habitats and the evaluation of environmental impacts and recovery of endangered species. Unfortunately, the proper identification of targeted species has stunted the development of the field. Now a series has emerged that stands as the leading resource on the reproduction and development of many North American fishes. Reproductive Biology and Early Life History of Fishes in the Ohio River Drainage fills immense gaps in knowledge of issues related to early life development of fishes in the Ohio basin. Volume III addresses the developmental and morphological issues of catfish and madtoms.This volume describes the characteristics of the Ictaluridae family, and provides a detailed pictorial guide. Subtopics within each species description include range, distribution, occurrence, spawning, eggs, development, ecology of early life phases, and more.This book serves as both a ready guide to help identify individual larval fish, and as a reference for those concerned with the overall health of the ecosystems or fisheries that they are monitoring.
