About this book

Each chapter covers a topic traditionally taught in fisheries science courses, from the point of view of the importance of early life stages.

This textbook is interesting and informative, and provides an excellent body of material that could be used to supplement other resources. In addition Fishery Science is invaluable as the only existing text on the early life-stages od development. Fish Biology and Fisheries, 2003. "Overall this book is a valuable contribution. It provides a basis for individual university courses and a reference and background for postgraduate studies as well as for active fisheries scientists." Steve Coombs, Journal of Fish Biology, 2003. "the book will be a most useful sourcebook for students of fishery science, and also for teachers wishing to include more information about the early life stages in their fish biology courses." Malcolm Jobling, Aquaculture International, 2003. "Most comprehensive texts on fishery science will say something about the egg and larval states, but leave out a lot of the scientific and methodological detail. This book fills the gaps and will allow students to obtain a deeper grasp, both of egg and larval biology and of fishery science...Teachers of fishery science will find this book a very useful supplement to their course literature." Paul J. B. Hart, Fish and Fisheries, 2003.
