Reviews: Methods and Technology in Fish Biology and Fisheries published by Kluwer Academic Publishers is a book series dedicated to the publication of information on advanced, forward-looking methodologies, technologies, or perspectives in fish and is especially dedicated to relevant topics addressing global, fisheries. This series international concern in fish and fisheries. Humans continue to challenge our environments with new technologies and technological applications. The dynamic creativity of our own species often tends to place the greatest burden on our supporting ecosystems. This is especially true for aquatic networks of creeks, lakes, rivers and ocean environments. We also frequently use our conceptual powers to balance conflicting requirements and demands on nature and continue to develop new approaches and tools to provide sustainable resources as well as conserve what we hold most dear on local and global scales. This book series will provide a window into the developing dynamic among humans, aquatic ecosystems (both freshwater and marine), and the organisms that inhabit aquatic environments. There are many reasons to doubt the increasing social and economic value technology has gained over the last two centuries. Science and technology represent stages in human development. I agree with Ernst Mayer when he said in Toward a New Philosophy of Biology (1988) that “endeavors to solve all scientific problems by pure logic and refined measurements are unproductive, if not totally irrelevant.

`This volume should be required reading for anyone considering electronic tag deployment. Overall, it generally presents a broad overview of deploying electronic monitoring devices on marine fishes. Even though some submissions are stronger than others, there are useful suggestions within all of them. This book is certainly a ready collection of references for researchers interested in the subject, whether the older acoustic telemetry or the newer electronic archival recorders.' The Quarterly Review of Biology, 78:4 (December 2003)
