Der preisgekrönte Autor und passionierte Angler Paul Greenberg nimmt uns mit auf eine Reise über die Flüsse und Meere dieser Welt und erzählt die Geschichte jener vier Fischarten, die mittlerweile überall die Speisekarten beherrschen: Lachs, Barsch, Kabeljau und Thunfisch. Er besucht norwegische Großfarmen, die jährlich 500 000 Tonnen Lachs produzieren - mit Hilfe genetischer Techniken, die ursprünglich bei der Schafzucht zum Einsatz kamen. In Alaska besichtigt er die einzige Fair-Trade-Fischerei der Welt. Er erklärt, warum die Meerestiere zunehmend mit Quecksilber und anderen Schadstoffen belastet sind, und schildert, wie der Mittelmeerbarsch zu einer global nachgefragten Ware werden konnte. Greenberg stellt viele der Fragen, die immer mehr Menschen beim Anblick einer Speisekarte oder der Tiefkühltruhe unseres Supermarkts beschäftigen: Was ist der Unterschied zwischen Wild-, Zucht- und Biofisch? Welchen Fisch können wir bedenkenlos essen? Was bedeutet Überfischung eigentlich? Lassen sich Fische wirklich domestizieren wie andere Tiere auch, oder sollten wir generell aufhören, Fisch zu essen? Fische, so Greenbergs Fazit, sind unser letztes wirklich ?wildes Nahrungsmittel. Womöglich nicht mehr lange. Nur wenn wir besser verstehen, unter welchen Bedingungen und um welchen Preis Fisch auf unseren Tellern landet, werden wir dem Lebensraum - und der Nahrungsquelle - Meer mit neuer, dringend gebotener Achtung begegnen.

This book provides the reader with over 250 clinical cases and covers all of the important medical and surgical conditions found in ornamental fishes. The well-illustrated cases appear randomly and are targeted at different levels of expertise. Questions pertaining to fish anatomy, physiology, husbandry, and identification have been included to make this text both educational and comprehensive. A team of internationally known and respected authors have written the questions and detailed explanatory answers, and Dr Lewbart has edited the text so that it is practical, informative and easy to read. Veterinary practitioners, professional aquarists, hobbyists, and students find this book to be a valuable addition to their education and clinical training.

This landmark publication brings together a huge wealth of information on the biology and culture of gilthead sea bream and other Sparidae species. Commencing with an overview of the current status of aquaculture of Sparidae, the book continues with comprehensive coverage of the family’s phylogeny, evolution and taxonomy, stress and welfare issues, and reproduction and broodstock management. Further chapters include coverage of early development and metabolism, production systems, nutrition, quality, and health management. A final cutting-edge chapter looks at genomic-proteomic research in Sparidae and its application to genetic improvement. With contributions from Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australasia and North America, carefully drawn together and edited by Professor M. Pavlidis and Dr C. C. Mylonas, themselves well known for their work in this area, Sparidae is an essential purchase for anyone working with this important family of fishes.

Parasiten bedrohen trotz jahrzehntelanger Anstrengungen nach wie vor die Gesundheit und das Leben des Menschen und seiner Haus-, Nutz- und Heimtiere. So sind fundierte Kenntnisse der parasitären Erkrankungen angesichts des zunehmenden weltweiten Reiseverkehrs sowohl für Reisende als auch für Humanmediziner unerläßlich. Zudem haben Parasiten als opportunistische Erreger bei AIDS-Patienten eine vorrangige Bedeutung erlangt, sind sie doch meist die eigentliche Todesursache. Aber auch Tiermediziner werden ständig mit Parasiten konfrontiert - sei es bei der Produktion von Lebensmitteln oder bei der Behandlung von Haustieren. Konzept dieses nun in sechster Auflage erschienenen Kurzlehrbuchs und Nachschlagewerks für Biologen, Tier- und Humanmediziner ist es, die Entwicklungszyklen der wichtigsten Tier- und Humanparasiten vergleichend darzustellen sowie ihre Übertragungswege und Überlebensstrategien im Wirt aufzuzeigen. Dabei können prophylaktische Maßnahmen z.T. größere Bedeutung erlangen als die Chemotherapie, die heute oft recht problematisch ist. Zudem werden die Morphologie und die biologischen Daten der wichtigsten Parasiten in für Studenten erlernbarer Weise aufbereitet und in über 700 Abbildungen und 20 Tabellen dargestellt.
