Fishing With Electricity: Its Application to Biology and Management

£100.00

Product description

Fishing, whether for sport, food or money, necessitates suitable waters which need to be managed intelligently to maximise recreation and profits. An increasingly popular method in the management of inland fisheries in particular is the use of electricity. Little, or often wrongly, used in the past, electricity is now a recognised and efficient tool for estimating the size and composition of fish populations, influencing their movements, securing examples for study and even for catching them commercially. Here then is a book written by experts for fishery scientists, fishery managers, fisherman and administrators. It is a book which not only summarises the situation of electric fishing in fresh water but also reviews the status of basic research in electro-physiology and applied electric fishing and identifies gaps in knowledge requiring further research.

Condition: Dustjacket is torn at top, and significantly shelfworn. Cloth-covered boards are a little rubbed and corner bumped. Moderate foxing to foreedge and FEP. Pages are clean and clear and binding is tight.
