About the Authors
  • Grey mullets are extremely important fish which are cultured or farmed in many countries, especially in the Mediterranean and South-East Asia. Mullets can be fed on a variety of food; this flexibility of feeding, together with the wide salinity of temperature tolerance, make these fish particularly suitable for agriculture. This 1981 volume considers all the aspects of these important food fish which are of relevance to their culture. After a discussion of the taxonomy and means of identification, both of adult fish and fry, the various authors consider reproduction, growth and feeding. The latter part of the book is about capture and artificial propagation, in fresh and brackish conditions. The final chapter is concerned with the relevant diseases and parasites of mullets (Mugilidae).
