About this book

The principal themes of this book are stress and health in fish. Stress is of central concern in aquaculture, as the various stressors which accompany intensive fish husbandry can predispose the fish to compromised growth and health, and promote disease. The book comprises a comprehensive collection of chapters which describe potential stressors and the stress responses of fishes, as well as relevant information about the effects of factors such as nutrition. A discussion of various methods of detecting stressed states in fish in the lab as well as in the field is also included. In addition to the physiological stress response as manifest in changes in the endocrine system or acid-base and ionic balance, behavioural aspects of stress in fish are also covered.

Reissue of a book first published in 1997.

Media reviews
Review of the hardback: '... this book provides a very interesting survey of the physiological and behavioural responses to stress in teleost fish, and stress related effects on fish health and performance. The book should be of great value to everyone working in aquaculture, as well as to students and workers in fish physiology.' Malcolm Jobling, Aquaculture International Review of the hardback: '... very informative and inspiring ... much of the information should become mandatory reading material for aquaculture, fisheries, and wildlife and range students ... good value for money.' Horst Kaiser, Rhodes University Review of the hardback: 'This book will be of valuable aid to researchers wishing to improve their understanding of the stress physiology of fish.' James L. Congleton, Northwest Science Review of the hardback: '... a most useful text for anyone interested in the health and welfare of finfish ... I would recommend the book as a source text for readers seeking a thorough overview of the subject in a very readable format.' Animal Welfare
