About this book

The Biology and Management of the World Tarpon and Bonefish Fisheries is a comprehensive reference guide to the economically and ecologically important tarpon and bonefish species. It combines an overview of the world tarpon and bonefish fisheries including their dynamics and status, a classical systematics approach to explore relationships between Elopomorpha genera, and modern molecular approaches to investigate intra- and inter-coastal differences in genetic structure throughout the oceans. Chapters cover aspects of tarpon and bonefish life history, age and growth, behavior, physiology, genetics, reproduction and recruitment, movements and migrations, fishing and fishery exploitation, habitat-animal relationships, mariculture and stock enhancement, ecosystem management, and fishery management experiences from various areas of the world.

"… this exceptional science text. I wish I’d had a text that bridged the gap that too often exists between science and the community ... Ault brings together the two perspectives admirably ... We need more books like this..."
