"Carp and other cyprinid fish are vitally important to the international fish farming market. Their deseases can have a very significant impact on that market. This excellent book describes many of those diseases and offers solutions in the form of both prevention and cure of those diseases." (Fishing Boat World, April 2004)
"This book will make an invaluable addition to the library of any institution or individual involved with the study or management of cyprinid fishes... a truly extensive work." (Ian J. Winfield, Fish and Fisheries)
"This is really an excellent publication that deserves a space on any fish textbook shelf" (Vaughan Lewis, FISH Magazine, May 2001)
From the Back Cover
Cyprinids rank as one of the most commercially important groups of freshwater fishes and are exploited for many purposes; as a human food source, especially in Europe and Asia; as sport fish; and as ornamental fish for ponds and aquaria. Certain species are also cultured as bait fish and several of the small cyprinids such as the zebra fish have become internationally accepted laboratory models for toxicology testing and molecular research. A thorough understanding of cyprinid health and diseases is fundamental to the successful management and exploitation of these fishes for freshwater fisheries, pisciculture and ornamental productions. This practical guide to disease diagnosis, prevention and control includes numerous colour plates and covers a comprehensive array of diseases - infectious and non-infectious - of cultivated and wild cyprinids.
