This electronic publication contributes to our understanding of the biology of fishes, by clarifying the role genetics plays in conservation and management of fisheries. The mechanisms of inheritance, and the changes in genetic instructions that occur during evolution, are the basis of all aspects of fish biology. Fish culturists, fishery managers, fishermen, and the public will find this introduction to fisheries genetics invaluable. The 3rd edition has new chapters on oceanography and the distances that fish travel.
