The behaviour of fish and shellfish under culture situations has long been ignored despite, heavy commercial losses that can result from fish stressed and hence disease-prone, due to bad husbandry techniques. This important new book summarises the current understanding of the behavioural biology of farmed species and illustrates how this can be applied to improve aquaculture practice.
Written by experts from around the world, the book has been carefully edited by Doctors Kadri and Huntingford, both widely known and respected for their work in this area. Chapters include coverage of cannibalism, movement study, feeding ecology, learning behaviour, aggression, welfare and stress physiology.
The book is an essential tool and reference for students and professionals in fish biology, aquaculture, animal behaviour and fish veterinary science.
