Contents Notes
Fish reproduction -- Development of eggs and larvae -- Fish egg and larval identification and systematics -- Ecology of fish eggs and larvae -- Sampling fish eggs and larvae -- Population dynamics and recruitment -- Habitat, water quality and conservation biology -- Rearing and culture of marine fishes. The life cycles of fishes are complex and varied, and knowledge of the early life stages is important for understanding the biology, ecology, and evolution of fishes. In Early Life History of Marine Fishes, Bruce S. Miller and Arthur W. Kendall Jr., bring together in a single reference much of the research available and its application to fishery science--knowledge increasingly important because for most fishes, adult populations are determined at the earliest stages of life. This book offers guidance on how to collect and analyze larval fish data and on how this information is interpreted by applied fish biologists and fisheries managers.
