The successful reproduction of cultured brood stock is essential to the sustainable aquaculture of aquatic organisms. This book describes advances in the field of finfish reproductive biotechnology. It reviews the progress and assesses the status of biotechnology research that is applicable to the reproduction of finfish species for aquaculture.


Preface. Effects of stress on fish reproduction, gamete quality, and progeny (C.B. Schreck, W. Contreras-Sanchez, M.S. Fitzpatrick). Effect of broodstock nutrition on reproductive performance of fish (M.S. Izquierdo, H. Fernandez-Palacios, A.G.J. Tacon). Genetics and broodstock management of coho salmon (J.M. Myers, P.O. Heggelund, G. Hudson, R.N. Iwamoto). The environmental regulation of maturation in farmed finfish with special reference to the role of photoperiod and melatonin (N. Bromage, M. Porter, C. Randall).
