The widely acclaimed 2nd edition of Anaesthetic and Sedative Techniques for Aquatic Animals provided the fisheries and aquaculture industry with vital information on the use of sedation and anaesthetics in the avoidance of stress and physical damage, which can easily be caused by crowding, capture, handling and release. Also an important feature of veterinary practice and research work, the book is a hands-on reference to anyone working with aquatic animals. Now fully revised and expanded, the third edition has maintained its accessible format and incorporates much new emphasis on fish pain and welfare; a rapidly developing area of interest and debate. A comprehensive new chapter covering anaesthesia and legislation takes an international perspective, covering the use of anaesthetic agents in aquatic animals for use both in the food chain and experimentation. Personnel involved in the aquaculture industry including fish farmers, fish veterinarians, fisheries scientists and fish biologists along with small animal veterinarians, animal laboratory managers and government and regulatory personnel will find this book a valuable and practical resource.
