By Francesca Trischitta, Yoshio Takei, Philippe Sébert

Eel of the genus Anguilla is a unprecedented fish, which because of its specific lifestyles cycle has interested biologists and physiologists ever because the pioneering works of Homer H. Schmidt within the Thirties. The Eel has develop into a very good version for numerous features of adaptive physiological learn. regardless of that, a number of books facing eel biology, aquaculture, fishing, etc., were released, yet there nonetheless is a necessity for a textual content facing eel body structure.

This booklet fills a void in eel literature by way of providing quite a few points of eel body structure in a single accomplished quantity. With its various figures and tables and an in depth up-to-date bibliography, it will likely be of curiosity not just to researchers and scholars but in addition to humans engaged in utilized examine in fishery and aquaculture. Eel is a commercially very important fish, however it needs to be shielded from over‐exploitation; as such, conservation measures are useful. it truly is was hoping that this e-book will stimulate and recommend new traces of analysis.
