Among the fishes. a remarkably wide variety ofbiological variations to diversified habitats has developed. As weIl as dwelling within the traditional habitats of lakes. ponds. rivers. rock swimming pools and the open sea. fish have solved the issues of existence in deserts. within the deep sea. within the chilly Antarctic. and in hot waters of excessive alkalinity or of low oxygen. in addition to those diversifications. we discover the main outstanding specializations of morphology. body structure and behavior. for instance we will be able to wonder on the high-speed swimming of the marlins. sailfish and warm-blooded tunas. air inhaling catfish and lungfish. parental care within the mouth-brooding cichlids and viviparity in lots of sharks and toothcarps. in addition. fish are of substantial value of the survival of the human species within the shape ofnutritious and scrumptious meals ofnumerous forms. Rational exploitation and administration of our international shares of fishes needs to depend upon a close and distinctive perception in their biology. The Chapman and corridor Fish and Fisheries sequence goals to provide well timed volumes reviewing very important elements of fish biology. such a lot volumes could be of curiosity to investigate staff in biology. zoology. ecology and body structure. yet an extra objective is for the books to be obtainable to a large spectrum of non­ professional readers starting from undergraduates and postgraduates to these with an curiosity in business and advertisement points of fish and fisheries.
