Eggs and Larvae of North Sea Fishes

By Peter Munk, Jorgen G. Nielsen

Eggs and larvae of North Sea fishes affords effective guidance to the investigation and identification of the early stages of fishes. It is introduced by a set of short chapters on research history and methods and on early stage morphology and ecology. In the subsequent section detailed descriptions of the early stages are given, covering 96 common fish species from the North Sea and adjacent waters. Each species is presented in two-paged openings with distinctive, black and white figures and short descriptions of the main diagnostic characters. The book will be a valuable tool to marine biologists who need to make correct identification of collected fish larvae, and want additional information on the early development of the species.
