FISH-MARKING TECHNIQUES

AFS Symposium 7

Edited by N.C. Parker, A.E.Giorgi,R.C. Heidinger, D.B. Jester, Jr., E.D. Prince, and G.A. Winans

Marking fish for subsequent tracking or recovery is one of the most important tools- biologists have for learning about fish and managing fishery resources. Recent technological and statistics advances have greatly expanded the suite of useful marking techniques, and additional methods are steadily being developed. FishMarking Techniques, the landmark proceedings of an international symposium, provides a comprehensive survey and evaluation of this rapidly evolving field.

This book contains over 1 00 peerreviewed papers that address external, internal, electronic, genetic, and chemical tags and marks; experimental design and analysis; and large-scale marking programs. Practical methodologies and experiences are emphasized, but underIying theory also is addressed in depth. Research, hatchery, and management applications receive full coverage. This volume will be invaluable to anyone, who marks fish (and Crustaceans) in any habitat, anywhere in the world.
