Book Description

This title includes a number of Open Access chapters.

A multidisciplinary subject, the study of fisheries science includes the biological study of life, habits, and breeding of various species of fish. It also involves farming and husbandry of important fishes and aquatic organisms in fresh water, brackish water and any marine environment. This new book includes a selection of topics in the field, such as the impact of climate change on tropical fish, studies on the reproductive and mating habits of specific fish, hibernation of Antarctic fish, the molecular makeup of specific fish, and more.

Biography

Professor William Hunter III has been fishing and studying fish since he was a very small child, as he grew up on a small lake, enjoying what the lake had to offer year round. He transformed his love of fishing into the academic study of marine ecology, with a master’s degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo with a specific focus in ecology and evolution. He has done extensive research in the fields of limnology and the effect of water quality on aquatic life. His work is currently funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, where he oversees research into the effects of a municipal sewer project on the water chemistry and aquatic life of the New York state lake where he lived during his childhood.
