With the advent of zebrafish as a model system, the development and growth of muscle in fish has become an ever more important process. This volume, in the continuing Fish Physiology series, focuses attention on muscle from the genetics of muscle development to application of muscle growth patterns to aquacultural production.
Graduate students in fish biology, aquaculture, and developmental biology; fisheries biologists,
physiologists, and ichthyologists interested in an up to date review of muscle growth and development; research laboratories in governement fishery departments; and libraries.

Quotes and reviews
"The major strength of Muscle Development and Growth is the range of material covered, from muscle pattern formation in zebrafish to temperature acclimation effects on muscle physiology. The book should succeed in stimulating new interest in fish muscle development and growth."
