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.

By: F.W. Tesch, J.E. Thorpe, and R.J. White
