Fisheries book from C.H.I.P.S.

Fish Reproductive Biology
Implications for Assesssment and Management
edited by Tore Jakobsen

The overall goal of this book is to give a picture of the present use of information on fish reproductive biology in assessment and management and its potential for improving management of these resources.

Compiled by an international team of authors, each an expert in their field, this exceptional volume is divided into three major sections:

  • Biology, population dynamics, and recruitment
  • Information critical to successful assessment and management
  • Incorporation of reproductive biology and recruitment considerations into management advice and strategies

Including over 100 diagrams, this book is essential reading for all fisheries scientists. Libraries in universities and research establishments where this subject is studied and taught should also have copies on their shelves.
