Reviews in Fish Biology and Fisheries is a quarterly international journal which publishes original and review articles on varied aspects of fish and fisheries biology. The subject matter is focused on including evolutionary biology, biogeography, molecular ecology, stock identification, genetics and genetic manipulation, physiology, environmental stress responses, functional morphology, behavior, ecology including behavioural ecology and tropic ecology, fisheries assessment, development, exploitation, conservation, bycatch and discard research, fish survey and census methods, electronic monitoring of fisheries, socio-ecology and governance. Coverage may include articles in any field of fish biology where the emphasis is placed on adaptation, function or exploitation in the whole organism. The aims are to provide an up-to-date synopsis for research workers in the chosen field with an outline of the next problems which should be tackled, as well as to furnish the non-specialist fish biologist with an awareness and understanding of the field.
In addition the journal includes details of interesting papers given at recent conferences, book reviews and correspondence arising from these reviews. The Journal caters for all those with an interest in fish biology and fisheries including those from universities and research institutes, fishing industries, local, regional and government institutions and international organizations.
