About this book

Biology and Ecology of Venomous Marine Scorpionfishes examines the diversity, utilization, and safe guarding against the world's most dangerous fish species. It covers the biological and ecological factors that differentiate each species in the Scorpaeninae (Scorpionfish) family and its Pteroinae (Lionfish) subfamily.

This book offers important anatomical and identification information on marine scorpionfishes, and delves into the diversity, habits, and behaviors of each venomous species. It also discusses the health risks that can plague the fish in and out of the wild, such as types of parasites.

Biology and Ecology of Venomous Marine Scorpionfishes is an essential resource to educate marine biology researchers and students on the various species of scorpionfish. This also provides a tool for sea-goers to protect against and avoid venomous stings from these fish.
