With this book a comprehensive work on marine fish parasitology is finally available to marine scientists and research workers, the sea- going staff concerned with fish processing and students of fisheries and ichthyology. It makes an important and necessary contribution to the field since it summarizes in one fact-filled volume information that was previously largely scattered in the literature.
The material covered ranges from identification of the fish parasites, their biology and life cycles to common invasion pathways and relationships within food chains. Emphasis is also placed on the economic effect of these parasites on the fish industry, as well as on the prevention of human infections. The numerous references to such practical aspects make the book a welcome guide to daily work in addition to being a highly qualified scientific consideration of marine fish parasitology.
