Eel Physiology 1st Edition

Eel of the genus Anguilla is an extraordinary fish, which due to its particular life cycle has fascinated biologists and physiologists ever since the pioneering works of Homer H. Schmidt in the 1930s. The Eel has become an excellent model for various aspects of adaptive physiological research. Despite that, several books dealing with eel biology, aquaculture, fishing, etc., have been published, but there still is a need for a text dealing with eel physiology.

This book fills a void in eel literature by presenting various aspects of eel physiology in one comprehensive volume. With its numerous figures and tables and an extensive up-to-date bibliography, it will be of interest not only to researchers and students but also to people engaged in applied research in fishery and aquaculture. Eel is a commercially important fish, but it must be protected from over‐exploitation; as such, conservation measures are necessary. It is hoped that this book will stimulate and suggest new lines of research.

This book provides coverage of many areas of eel physiology and it is the result of the enthusiastic contribution of specialists in various physiological fields. Each chapter, besides providing a close examination of the related topics, provides perspectives and future directions of research. The book contains numerous figures and tables and an extensive up-to-date bibliography.

It will be of interest not only to researchers, teachers and students but also to professionals engaged in fishery works including aquaculture who face in practical terms collapsing populations and hence the necessity to protect and conserve these species.
