Written by leading authorities in the field, this new edition of Volume 2 in the successful Fish Diseases and Disorders trilogy has been thoroughly updated with new research and contributions. Focusing largely on finfish, it covers non-infectious disorders of development, growth and physiology of wild and captive species, including genetic conditions, respiratory disorders, stress physiology and environmental factors. There is also a new contribution on the relationship between welfare issues and disorders associated with intensive fish culture. The book is indispensable for zoologists, fish health specialists and veterinarians, researchers and students, and those involved with fisheries and aquaculture.

`The book is important for those involved in aquaculture and those wishing to learn more about the effects of non-infectious disorders and the mechanisms of response within fish and is thoroughly recommended.' Journal of Fish Diseases

`Brimming with interesting details, the editors have succeeded in providing an extremely informative reference book, which should be widely consulted and appreciated by its target audience.' Fish and Fisheries
