Fish Reproductive Biology

About this book

The reproductive success and recruitment of young fish into the exploitable population is the single most important factor for determining annual abundance levels of fishes in major commercial fisheries. The objective of this important new book is to argue for stronger linkages between basic and applied research on fisheries recruitment.

Contents include an introduction to recruitment, information on fisheries biology and population dynamics and how these relate to recruitment, information critical to the rational and successful management and assessment of fisheries, the incorporation of reproductive biology and recruitment considerations into management advice and strategies, and suggestions for future possibilities and new approaches. Fish Reproductive Biology is essential reading for all fisheries scientists.

Media reviews

"This book would certainly be an excellent choice for a reading course. [...] This is the kind of book that challenges the dogma of introductory courses as well as the methods professionals use to address familiar problems. Each chapter provides personal perspectives, highlights emerging case histories, and illuminates the background conversations that go on at professional conferences and assessment workshops."
– Fisheries, March 2010
