"This thoroughly updated and revised third edition of Biology of Fishes focuses on the ingenious ways in which fish have resolved the particular problems that come from living in water, especially the acquisition of oxygen, feeding mechanisms, locomotion, and sensory awareness. There is a new chapter discussing the innate and acquired immune system of fish and the effects of disease on aquaculture and capture fisheries." Biology of Fishes has been written for undergraduate students of fish biology, ichthyology and any of the branches of aquatic biology.
