About this book

It has been over 30 years since the first edition of the groundbreaking Methods for Fish Biology was released and much has changed. This new edition features contributions from a diverse set of authors and includes topics not covered in the 1st edition and updates to many of the important topics that remain relevant to the fields of fish biology, ichthyology, and fisheries science. However, ecologists, geneticists, conservationists, reproductive biologists, and the like should find useful information here, and both the senior scientist and the new student will find useful new tools and discussions in these pages.

This new edition was designed to cover topics ranging from taxonomy to physiology to applied ecology – and everything in between. Standard information (such as histological techniques) has been updated and reinforced, while topics like stable isotopes and ecotoxicology are new additions. All chapters provide background and context before going deeper into a range of relevant methods and finally ending on what the future directions are for the topic. Each chapter is well referenced and includes a glossary.
