Product description


Because of this, the book is most appropriate for advanced students interested in fisheries, fisheries managers, and professionals in the field.  Summing Up: Recommended.  Upper–division undergraduates and above.   (Choice, 1 September 2014)

It is certainly the most comprehensive volume on fish condition published to date.   (Fish & Fisheries, 4 October 2014)

This book represents an essential contribution to the biology of marine fishes and will be an extremely valuable guide for the monitoring, conservation and sustainable exploitation of fish stocks.   (Marine Biology Research, 1 September 2014)


Condition and Health Indicators of Exploited Marine Fishes covers all aspects from a description of the measures of condition, to physiology and biochemistry; the underlying biological mechanisms, to environmental factors affecting condition, and finally to the use of condition indicators in stock assessment. This broad coverage will aid researchers in their thinking about how condition is determined and what changes in condition mean for individuals and populations. Bringing all of these aspects together in one volume makes this book a very valuable reference tool. (Dr Joanne Morgan, Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Centre, Fisheries & Oceans Canada, Canada)

This book is very informative and valuable It is truly an international example of a review, in which different literature sources (including Russian, Ukrainian, Scottish and Spanish sources that existed as a grey literature ) have been assembled for a broader international audience. The authors, well known for their excellent research, have provided a substantial and undeniable contribution to fish condition studies. The book should certainly be a desktop book for many fishery scientist/ecologists as well as for students and all who are interested in marine life research. (Dr Natalia A. Yaragina,Knipovich Polar Research Institute of Marine Fisheries and Oceanography, Russia)

The seven chapters in this book provide, for the first time, a detailed and complete analysis of the diversity of the current methods used for analyzing fish condition, providing cutting–edge examples of various applications and recent advances this book improves knowledge on fish condition indices and their applications to fisheries and environmental sciences. It is an essential reference for students, researchers and fishery managers interested in fishery topics. (Professor Rachid Amara,Université du Littoral Côte d Opale, UMR LOG 8187 CNRS, France)

The authors are to be applauded for providing an updated review on this topic in a single volume and from a variety of perspectives numerous aspects of the book are to be commended: the range of condition indicators reviewed, the inclusion of applied recommendations and emphasis of important points, and the diversity of facets treated in relation to condition and health indicators. (Dr Emili García–Berthou,University of Girona, Spain)

The present book extensively covers all these aspects related to the measurement, significance and usefulness of condition indicators to study fish populations in their natural environment. It represents a significant reference for fisheries biologists interested in measuring fish health status and productivity.
(Dr. Yvan Lambert Institut Maurice–Lamontagne, Fisheries and Oceans Canada)
