This important and informative new book outlines and discusses details of the basic principles and methods that are central to any study of fish condition, from a fish ecology and fisheries biology perspective. Condition and Health Indicators of Exploited Marine Fishes describes the potential capacities of condition indicators, providing examples showing the use of these indicators to solve practical problems in connection with fish ecology and fisheries research. By focusing on wild fish populations, the book complements the increasing number of scientific works that are contributing to show how fish condition studies are key to reveal problems in marine aquaculture, the effects of pollution, fish disease, and the importance of fish in human nutrition and medicine. Condition and Health Indicators of Exploited Marine Fishes provides a comprehensive introduction to the study of fish condition that will assist advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers and professionals, working in marine ecology and biology, fisheries biology, environmental sciences and fish pathology. All universities and research establishments where biological and environmental sciences, fisheries and aquaculture are studied and taught should have copies of this book on their shelves.

Author Biography

Dr Josep Lloret (Roses, 1971) is a fisheries biologist who carries out pioneering research on fish condition health) and its influence on life history traits, such as reproduction and growth. His research has been conducted at the CSIC and the University of Girona (Spain), the Institute of Sea Fisheries-Thunen Institute (Germany) and the CNRS (France). Dr Prof Georgiy Shulman (Kiev, 1929) is a marine zoologist, specialising in fish ecology and physiology. His well-known investigations have great significance in the areas of fish adaptations, biodiversity, life history and productivity, as well as fishery problems. His research has been carried out in The Institute of Biology of the Southern Seas (Sevastopol, Ukraine). Dr R. Malcolm Love (Liverpool, 1928-2006) was a world-renowned fish biochemist and biotechnologist. Dr Love carried out research in the fields of fish chemical biology, and the importance of fish in human nutrition, at the Torry Research Station, Aberdeen, Scotland, UK.
