About this book

Among the roughly 30,000 species of fish, migratory species account for only 165 species, but most of them are very important fisheries resources. Physiology and Ecology of Fish Migration presents up-to-date innovative research results on the physiology and ecology of fish migration. It focuses on salmon, eels, lampreys, and bluefin tuna.

Physiology and Ecology of Fish Migration examines migratory behavior, spawning, and behavioral ecology.
