About this book

Fish cannot regulate their body temperature and so are at the mercy of the environmental temperature. The potential impact of global warming on fish health and productivity is immense, with great economic and ecological implications. In this multi-authored book, the current state of knowledge on the effects of temperature on freshwater and marine fish is reviewed by experts from a wide range of areas of fish physiology, reproduction, toxicology, behaviour and ecology.

The possible effects on fish of a 2-4 degree celsius global warming scenario are examined, making this of great use to ecologists, physiologists and those involved in fisheries research and management.

Paperback re-issue, originally published in 1997.
