About this book

This book is dedicated to present different aspects of reproductive physiology and molecular endocrinology of commercially important as well as potential aquaculture fish species. The existing aquaculture generation is looking for species diversification for efficient utilization of available diverse water resources. The knowledge of reproductive physiology of fish will help in development of breeding strategy for use in commercial aquaculture. Reproductive system is highly coordinated and governed by means of complex network of nervous, endocrine system and environmental factor as well. This book emphasize on different  key aspects of reproductive endocrine system  such as basic gonadal biology in the events of climate vulnerability, sex determination, sex reversal, stimulatory hormones, inhibitory hormones and receptors, environmental and chemical factor guiding reproduction, puberty, neuroendocrine regulation of reproduction etc. This book further describes how reproduction is not just indispensable for the existence or survival of an individual, but it is important for the survival of species. Chapters also address the concerns of anthropogenic activities on fish and the aquatic environment lead main trouble on physiological and reproductive processes of aquatic animals.

This book offers an attractive compilation of highly relevant aspects of current and future of aquaculture, especially in view of the growing awareness of aquaculture, to food scientists working on commercial fish, animal biologists, fish geneticists etc. This book is very timely, and relevant to the sustainable development goals. The contents would be relevant to policy makers, working towards blue revolution and blue economy.
