Estuaries provide vital ecosystems for many species of fish to breed, grow, feed and migrate. In particular, these habitats are important relating to fish species that are taken commercially whilst either in the estuary, or in marine or freshwater areas at other stages of their life cycle.

In addition, estuarine habitats are amongst the most threatened environments and are subject to many human impacts, for example the building of barriers, the input of pollutants, dredging for navigation and land claim for building or agriculture.

This important title encompasses the work of many internationally recognised experts in the area, providing a comprehensive book that covers in detail the biology and exploitation of estuarine fishes and their habitats.

"This book is impressive because it is so comprehensive and yet usable... Fishes in Estuaries should be the first book to be consulted by anyone, including fishers, scientists and managers, seeking information about estuarine fishes, and should be on all their bookshelves!"

Fish and Fisheries

"It is anticipated that the findings of this book could be used to provide ecologically based guidelines for the preservation, restoration, and management of fish populations... this book would be a useful addition to the bookshelf of anyone interested in estuarine fishes."

"This book provides a highly practical and valuable synthesis on fishes in esturies... It provides the reader with a good starting point to the wealth of divers information on the subject. Its logical layout means that the book is easy to dip onto to find the desired pointers. As such, it is an excellent standard text and will be widely used."
