Written by leading authorities in the field, this new edition of Volume 2 in the successful Fish Diseases and Disorders trilogy has been thoroughly updated with new research and contributions. Focusing largely on finfish, it covers non-infectious disorders of development, growth and physiology of wild and captive species, including genetic conditions, respiratory disorders, stress physiology, environmental factors and a new contribution on the relationship between welfare issues and disorders associated with intensive fish culture. The book is indispensable for zoologists, fish health specialists and veterinarians, researchers and students, and those involved with fisheries and aquaculture.
