Aquaculture Perspectives – Fish naming standards

New standards for common names of fishes apply to aquaculture, all fisheries sciences

Manci-SHNot long ago, I was casually thumbing through my April copy of Fisheries, the magazine of the American Fisheries Society (AFS), a duty I look forward to every month when it comes through the door.

For me, one of the highlights is seeing what new books and other publications might be available for purchase.

As a consultant, one of my primary jobs is to stay up to date on the scientific and so-called gray literature, and expanding my electronic and hardcopy library is a never-ending task.

When I got to page 188, an interesting article by Lawrence M. Page and his colleagues caught my attention.

Read the rest and much, much more in Issue 3, 2013 of Fish Farming News.  Download access instructions so that you can read the online flipbook AND download a pdf copy for future reference.
