Fish recruitment is a key process for maintaining sustainable fish populations. In the marine environment, fish recruitment is carried out in many different ways, all of which have different life history strategies. The objective of this book is to argue for greater linkages between basic and applied research on fisheries recruitment, and assessment and management of exploited fish stocks.

Following an introductory chapter, this second edition of Fish Reproductive Biology is organized into 3 main sections:

  • Biology, Population Dynamics and Recruitment
  • Information Critical to Successful Assessment and Management
  • Incorporation of Reproductive Biology and Recruitment Considerations into Management Advice and Strategies

The authors collectively bring a wide range of diverse experience in areas of reproductive biology, fisheries oceanography, stock assessment, and management.

Fully updated throughout, the book will be of great interest to a wide audience. It is useful as a textbook in graduate and undergraduate courses in fisheries biology, fisheries science, and fisheries resource management and will provide vital information for fish biologists, fisheries scientists and managers.
