About this book

The senses of smell and taste in fish play a vital role in many aspects of fish behaviour including feeding, migration and breeding. The editor of the book has drawn together an eminent group of contributors who provide a thorough synthesis of all aspects of the subject. The application of knowledge of this area is very important for fish feed manufacture, aquaculture and commercial and sport fishing lure production. "Fish Chemoreception" therefore provides a reference source to all those involved in research in fish biology, fisheries, aquaculture and the fishing industry.

Some important new information on receptors is presented...This book is a good mix of detailed information on physiology and anatomy linked with information on behaviour, ecology and aquaculture. A wide range of readers from comparative anatomists to fishery managers will find it a useful addition to their libraries - Journal of Fish Biology
