Symposium 19: Proceedings of the “Fish Ecology in Arctic North America Symposium,” held at Fairbanks, Alaska, USA, May 19-21, 1992

This proceedings of a May 1992 symposium held in Alaska summarizes current knowledge of the biology and ecology of freshwater, anadromous, and marine fishes in arctic Alaska and Canada. Symposium topics addressed arctic and subarctic regions and included all arctic North American fishes, invertebrates, and their habitats. This volume contains valuable information for arctic fisheries scientists and managers, and will serve as a key fisheries reference for years to come.

This book is intended for:

* arctic fisheries scientists, and * arctic fisheries managers.
