    Wiley 2008; US$ 114.99 US$ 99.66

    The recent development of molecular biology and genetic techniques, in particular those that are increasingly being used in practical situations in fish biology, fisheries and aquaculture, has led to a gap in the understanding by many of the science behind these techniques and their correct implementation for maximum results. The authors of this... more...
