The deep ocean is home to some of the most unusual of all fishes. Practically every organ system is affected by the constraints imposed by benthic pressure, the absence of light and the relatively scarce supply of both food and mates. This book demonstrates how these fishes, living in extremely harsh conditions, metabolise, behave and evolve.
The Fish Physiology Series has set a very high standard of quality from its first volume published in 1969... and have become increasingly more focused in their subject treatments. --Joseph J. Torres in COPEIA "Deep-Sea Fishes is a volume that is definitely worth having as an excellent, up-to-date reference. Whether you are teaching a course or otherwise researching a deep-sea topic, you'll find this a great place to begin your research. In most cases, you'll be able to find what you need; in others, you'll know where to look next." --Joseph J. Torres in COPEIA
