Media reviews

All universities and research establishments where biological sciences, aquaculture and fisheries science are studied and taught should have copies of this excellent book on their shelves. (Acquaculture Europe, 1 June 2011) "The book is most likely to be read by aquaculture scientists and commercial producers in Mediterranean countries, but it also has something to offer all those with interests in the biology and cultivation of warm-water, marine fishes. The book can also act as a source of reference for aquaculture researchers and students in other parts of the world." (Aquacult International, 15 June 2011) "This comprehensive work on marine fisheries showcases current scholarship in the biology, physiology, evolution and aquaculture of sea bream, porgies and other members of the Sparidae family . .. . each chapter is individually notated and referenced and arranged for easy reference." (Booknews, 1 April 2011)
