This book will be an important resource for environmental toxicologists and fishery biologists. Postgraduates and researchers new to the field will also find the book invaluable. For others, working within narrow specialist fields, it provides an insight into the wider impacts that pollution in fish can cause.. Journal of Fish Biology, Vol. 67, October 2005 "The main readership of the book will be fish physiologists and environmental biologists with interests in aquatic ecophysiology and ecotoxicology."
