Early Life History of Marine Fishes

Bruce Miller and Sirpa Nummela

Abstract

The life cycles of fishes are complex and varied, and knowledge of the early life stages is important for understanding the biology, ecology, and evolution of fishes. This book bring together in a single reference much of the research available and its application to fishery science—knowledge increasingly important because for most fishes, adult populations are determined at the earliest stages of life. This book offers expert guidance on how to collect and analyze larval fish data and on how this information is interpreted by applied fish biologists and fisheries managers.

Keywords: marine fishes, life cycle, early life stages, biology, ecology, evolution, fishes, larval fish, fish biologists, fisheries
