Encyclopedia of Fish Physiology, Second Edition is a comprehensive, introductory-level reference work that aims to unite readers in the wonders of this discipline. Chapters highlight where physiological systems and processes are conserved across vertebrate groups, which supports the use of fish as a vertebrate model for investigating fundamental problems in physiology and knowledge transfer to the medical field. Other chapters highlight unique specializations and adaptations that allow fish to survive in challenging environments, leading to a deeper appreciation of the natural world. Final sections demonstrate the consequences of perturbing physiological systems and how this knowledge can empower conservation strategies to protect fish.

Much has changed in the field of fish physiology since publication of the previous, Prose award winning, edition. For example, we understand better the impacts of global climate change on the physiological systems of fish, and we have gained a deeper mechanistic understanding of physiological processes through technological advancements such as gene editing with CRISPR, whole genome sequencing, and quantitative 'omic' approaches. The new edition greatly expands the closing thematic section focused on applying fish physiology to real world challenges with topics including ocean acidification, declining habitat quality due to human activities, and the use of zebrafish in biomedical studies on tissue regeneration, neurological disorders and cancer.

Key features

  • Comprehensive single resource on fish physiology that covers a diverse range of topics to educate and fascinate
  • Written by leading experts in the field, offering topical overviews with a suggested reading list for those wanting to learn more
  • Structured, accessible chapters include graphical and bulleted summaries that can be used as teaching material
  • Follows a set template, making the work consistent and easy to navigate


Students and researchers in the many fields related to fishes, such as Biology, Environmental Sciences, Marine Sciences, Agri-food Engineering, Aquaculture, Developmental and Evolutionary Biologists (fish as the main group of vertebrates), Biotechnologists and Biochemists (fish as biofactories), Biomedical Scientists and Biomedical Engineers (fish as a models of diseases, regeneration)
