Synopsis

Fish Endocrinology by Allan J. Matty

The hormonal systems of fish have recently produced a number of important research findings. In part the stimulus for this work has come from the developing areas of fish farming and aquaculture, where artificial control of spawning by hormones is now a practical possibility. Furthermore, there has been an awarenees that non-mammalian hormones might be used therapeutically in man, and today fish calcitonin is being investigated as a treatment for human parathyroid disorders. Fish Endocrinology assumes that the reader has a background in basic mammalian endocrinology, and the main aim of this book is to place fish endocrinology within the context of comparative anatomy and physiology and of the evolution of hormones as well as to discuss applied aspects. This book should be of interest to advanced students and research workers in endocrinology and fish biology.
