This book describes in general how the chemosensory systems of fish function at various levels. In many ways, fish are typical vertebrates differing only slightly from other vertebrates including humans. In otherways, their aquatic environment imposes strict requirements or offers unique opportunities which have resulted in some unusual functions having no counterpart in higher vertebrates. This new volume is necessitated by advancesin many vital areas as the field of chemical senses continues to grow at a rapid pace. Most significant is the application of the contemporary electrophysiological technique of patch-clamping, recognition of a second messengersystem in chemosensory transduction processes and the identification of hormonal pheromones in fish reproductive behaviour. The last major synthesis of our knowledge about fish chemoreception, Chemoreception in Fishes, waspublished ten years ago (Elsevier, Amsterdam, 1982). In that volume four aspects of fish chemoreception, Le. morphology of the peripheral chemoreceptors. primary sensory processes, roles in behaviour, and its interactions withenvironment, were discussed. This book is intended to be helpful to students, scientists and aquacul­ turists not only as a source book but also as a textbook on chemical senses.

Some important new information on receptors ispresented...This book is a good mix of detailed information onphysiology and anatomylinked with information on behaviour, ecologyand aquaculture.Awide range of readers from comparative anatomiststo fishery managerswill find it a useful addition to their libraries- Journal of FishBiology
