Biology and Ecology of Sardines and Anchovies by Konstantinos Ganias

By Konstantinos Ganias

Apart from being commercially and socially major, anchovies and sardines populations occupy an important positions within the oceans’ ecosystems. Low within the foodstuff chain, clupeoids have a tendency in the direction of abundance, as though their objective in lifestyles was once to be eaten and gasoline the higher degrees of marine trophic chains. the current publication covers a extensive spectrum of issues at the biology (sytematics, phylogeography, replica, feeding) and ecology (habitat characterization, recruitment variability) of anchovies and sardines. It additionally places jointly vital info at the nation in their fisheries, exploitation and management.
