About this book

This book reviews up-to-date knowledge on the biology of sole (Solea solea and S. senegalensis). These flatfish species are increasingly important in Europe both from the ecological and production point of view. The Biology of Sole is divided into two sections: 1. basic scientific information; 2. direct applications and protocols used by the aquaculture industry. Experts, from both academia and research institutes, provide their expertise on sole biology.
