This third volume in the series covers such topics as anaesthetics, cannulation and injection techniques, and surgery. The book will be invaluable to fisheries scientists, aquaculturists, and animal biochemists, physiologists and endocrinologists; it will provide researchers and students with a pertinent information source from theoretical and experimental angles.

Quotes and reviews
@qu:...presents an overwhelming amount of very useful technical information and it will be a really useful guide not only for all researchers in fish physiology. But also for aquaculturists, who will find some useful techniques, such as blood sampling, anaesthetics and operation techniques.
