About this book

The Sparidae, commonly known as breams and porgies, is a family of fishes of the order Perciformes, and includes about 115 species of mainly marine coastal fish of high economic value, exploited and farmed for human consumption, as well as for recreational purposes.

This landmark publication brings together a huge wealth of information on the biology and culture of gilthead sea bream and other Sparidae species. Commencing with an overview of the current status of aquaculture of Sparidae, the book continues with comprehensive coverage of the family's phylogeny, evolution and taxonomy, stress and welfare issues, and reproduction and broodstock management. Further chapters include coverage of early development and metabolism, production systems, nutrition, quality, and health management. A final cutting-edge chapter looks at genomic-proteomic research in Sparidae and its application to genetic improvement.

With contributions from Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australasia and North America, carefully drawn together and edited by Professor M. Pavlidis and Dr C. C. Mylonas, themselves well known for their work in this area, Sparidae is an essential purchase for anyone working with this important family of fishes. Fish biologists, fish farmers, aquaculture researchers, and fisheries managers will all find much of great use and interest within this book's covers. 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.

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
