"Each chapter while short in length covers a lot of ground (or rather "water") with a surprisingly large number of references in support of each chapter. The book reads like a textbook with short, concise and yet interestingly informative chapters. By far, the most favored section for the reviewer was the section of Fish Medicine... chapters are supplemented with beautiful pictures... suitable for the practicing veterinary technician as well as veterinary technician students." (Veterinary Information Network, February 2010)
