This multi-authored book with chapters by state, federal, and international agency scientists and academic experts provides an up-to-date review of biology, life history, ecology, genetics, habitat use, and sustainable fisheries management of the North American Paddlefish.
Recent advances in knowledge of life history, migrations and movements, recruitment are included and technological advances in genetics, telemetry, sonar, eDNA, and microchemistry are addressed. The book includes chapters discussing Paddlefish aquaculture for restoration, supplementation, and commercial production. The scope extends beyond the domestic range of Paddlefish by adding perspectives on global status, including introduction and aquaculture in Europe and Asia. The book also has relevance to people interested in caviar, as well as to those studying and managing sturgeon and other long-lived fish species worldwide.
