Media reviews
.. a source of detailed information on freshwater fish migrations, particularly given its taxonomic and geographical breadth, this volume will prove to be exceedingly valuable. American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists "This is an excellent, well researched and presented text that provides solid information on a subject of increasing importance to our knowledge of fish populations in freshwater systems." Fish "Many know about salmon, but few know as much about freshwater fish movements as is contained in this volume. Therein lies its value." Fish and Fisheries "This text is almost certainly the most comprehensive and up-to-date one there is on the subject of freshwater fish migration and it is bound to become the standard reference work for many years."
