Kurzbeschreibung

Fascinating and instantly recognizable, flatfishes are unique intheir asymmetric postlarval body form. With over 800 extant speciesrecognized and a distribution stretching around the globe, thesefishes are of considerable research interest and provide a majorcontribution to commercial and recreational fisheries worldwide.This second edition of Flatfishes: Biology andExploitation has been completely revised, updated and enlargedto respond to the ever-growing body of research. It provides:
* Overviews of systematics, distribution, life historystrategies, reproduction, recruitment, ecology and behaviour
* Descriptions of the major fisheries and theirmanagement
* An assessment of the synergies between ecological andaquaculture research of flatfishes.
Carefully compiled and edited by four internationally-knownscientists and with chapters written by many world leaders in thefield, this excellent new edition of a very popular and successfulbook is essential reading for fish biologists, fisheriesscientists, marine biologists, aquaculture personnel, ecologists,environmental scientists, and government workers in fisheries andfish and wildlife departments. Flatfishes: Biology andExploitation, Second Edition, should be found in all libraries ofresearch establishments and universities where life sciences, fishbiology, fisheries, aquaculture, marine sciences, oceanography,ecology and environmental sciences are studied and taught.
Reviews of the First Edition
* A solid, up-to-date book that advanced students andresearch scientists with interests in fish biology will findinteresting and useful. Aquaculture International

Robin N. Gibson is an Honorary Research Fellow of theScottish Association for Marine Science, Scottish Marine Institute,Oban, Scotland. His lifetime research interests have been in theecology and behaviour of intertidal and shallow water marinefishes.
Richard D.M. Nash is a senior research scientist at theInstitute of Marine Research, Bergen, Norway. His research ismainly concerned with recruitment processes and the early lifehistory dynamics of marine fishes. He has particular researchinterests in the dynamics of nursery grounds.
Audrey J. Geffen is a professor in the Department ofBiology, University of Bergen, Norway. Her research is primarilyconcerned with fish growth in natural and culture environments. Asignificant aspect of her work involves theoretical and appliedresearch on the growth and formation of fish otoliths, analysingthe structure and composition as a record of life history.
Henk W. van der Veer is a senior scientist at the RoyalNetherlands Institute for Sea Research, The Netherlands. His mainresearch topics are related to fish recruitment, concentrating onflatfishes and the functioning of coastal nursery areas. His workis strongly focussed on field observations supported by andembedded in ecological theory, especially the Dynamic Energy Budgettheory.
