Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Coastal and Estuarine Studies, Volume 43.

The aim of this volume is to present an account of recent progress in basic research on animal species (mostly fishes) currently exploited in aquaculture, insofar as this knowledge is a source of actual or potential applications in this industry. Each contribution is updated to contain the best of current knowledge in the field and to provide a large variety of readers with a valuable source of information.
