Fish and other seafood have always been considered as an important part of human diet and have also long been recognized as a health-promoting food for human nutrition. However, managing aquatic food resources remains a challenge as the human population is expanding and overfishing poses a threat to fishing reserves in several areas. Aquaculture is the alternative solution for food production from the sea. According to the FAO, aquaculture is probably the fastest growing food-producing sector and can be a sustainable solution for fish production. In order to maximize marine food production and achieving sustainable management of the aquatic environment, knowledge about aspects of fisheries and aquatic animal health is very important. Trends in Fisheries and Aquatic Animal Health covers some basic and applied topics in fishery management and fish health with a focus on European regions. The textbook is a combination of reviews and research articles. Topics covered in the book include challenges in fishery management, environmental impacts on fisheries, fish health (pharmacology, histopathology, stress response), telemetry techniques in fisheries research, and specific case studies of regional marine species in localized fisheries. This textbook is a useful resource for graduates and professionals involved in advanced training courses for aquaculture and fishery management.

Mapping of animal genomes has generated huge databases and several new concepts and strategies, which are useful to elucidate origin, evolution and phylogeny. Genetic and physical maps of genomes further provide precise details on chromosomal location, function, expression and regulation of academically and economically important genes. The series Genome Mapping and Genomics in Animals provides comprehensive and up-to-date reviews on genomic research on a large variety of selected animal systems, contributed by leading scientists from around the world. This volume summarizes the first era of genomic studies of aquaculture species, in which the tools and resources necessary to support whole-genome sequencing were developed. These tools will enhance efforts toward selective breeding of aquaculture species. Included in this volume are summaries of work on salmonids, cyprinids, catfish, tilapias, European sea bass, Japanese flounder, shrimps and oysters.

This book presents an experimental approach in aquatic ecology on the level of organism, population and ecosystem. Principles of the experiments are energy flow and transformation of the organic matter. The book consists of five chapters. The first four chapters have the same structure. They begin with the shot introduction, then there are methods of investigations, in the other parts of the each chapter are descriptions of results and they are finalized by a paragraph “Tests and exercises”. The main results are presented in quantitative form as equations between the studying process and body mass, temperature and other environmental factors. Chapter 1 concentrates on concepts of experimental ecology, on energy balance, its means of expression and on units of measurement of the balance equality. Chapter 2 is devoted to the role of animal respiration in the mineralization of organic matter. Summarized data have given a possibility to compare the metabolic rate of different representatives of animal kingdom from one cell organisms to the vertebrata. In the chapter 3 are described growth, development and production of aquatic animals, types of their somatic growth, generative growth and its relation to the energy metabolism. The subject of the chapter 4 is quantitative concepts of animal feeding. In the chapter 5 are used the results of the previous four chapters for explain the relation between size of organisms and their productive properties, the role of organisms in purification and formation of water quality and other important questions in general biology, ecology, fishery, aquaculture and other environmental sciences. The book was planed as a textbook for bachelor students. Indeed it is a review of quantitative approach in aquatic ecology. 148 pages, 52 figures.

The development and ecology of coastal waters is an increasingly important topic and one which touches a wide range of areas including oceanography, hydrology, biology, ecology, fisheries science, aquaculture, civil engineering, geography, economics, law and the social sciences. This book provides a balanced overview allowing the reader to understand exactly what is at stake in the development and management of coastal waters. There is no other book currently available which provides such an overview of this important area. Divided into three parts, the first part provides the background knowledge necessary for an understanding of the physical, chemical and biological phenomena of coastal waters. Part 2 looks at marine ecology from something other than the traditional view of placing organisms at the centre of the problem and considering them in relation to other organisms and environments, instead the authors show how it is possible with marine ecosystems in which the biological, physical and chemical components are equally important when defining an entire system. Finally an exhaustive review of the available technology for various types of development is provided. All in all, this book constitutes a succint and up-to-date summary of the functions of coastal ecosystems which should be read by all those active in, and with an interest in, the management and development of coastal seas.
