by Dr P .H. Greenwood British Museum (Natural History), London Dr Tesch's wide ranging account of anguillid eels impinges on the interests of many biologists; it is not simply a specialized tome narrowly aimed at ichthyologists and fishery scientists, rather it provides a source of primary reference and a comprehensive sununary of informa tion that is not likely to be superseded for a long time. It is significant that the bibliography includes references to learned journals concerned with physiology, pharmacology, taxonomy, genetics, zoology, endo crinology, botany, ecology and environmental interactions. Such is the breadth of interest in the Anguillidae. Few fish species have been subjected to as detailed review as Dr Tesch gives for the (wo Atlantic species of Anguilla. An equally comprehensive resume of research into the fourteen, rather less well-studied Indo Pacific species gives balance and reciprocal illumination to several biological problems posed by these similar but quite distinctive species.

A strong demand for an English version of the third German Edition of this extremely important book, paved the way for this excellent new translation, which contains much new information from over 500 publications, not covered by the previous English language edition.The Eel is the standard work on the species with chapters in the book covering body structure and functions, developmental stages and distribution of the eel species, post-larval ecology and behaviour, harvest and environmental relationships, fishing methods, eel culture, diseases, parasites and bodily damage, the world trade in eels and eel processing. Contributions are included from several world authorities including new information concerning genetic diversity in eel populations and the consequences for their management.Written by Friedrich-Wilhelm Tesch, one of the foremost world authorities on eels and carefully edited by Professor Thorpe, well known for his work in fish biology, writing and editing, The Eel is an essential purchase for all those working with the species, including fish biologists, physiologists and ecologists, aquatic and environmental scientists, fisheries managers and fish farm personnel. Copies of this landmark publication should be available in the libraries of all research establishments and universities where these subjects are studied or taught.The Fisheries Society of the British Isles provided generous financial support enabling the translation and publication of this book.Written by F-W Tesch; Translated from the German Edition by R.
