About these proceedings


This volume provides a selection of the most significant papers presented at the Second Conference on Fish Telemetry in Europe in La Rochelle, France, in April 1997. The conference was attended by 100 scientists from 18 countries. The contributions are grouped under the following headings:
  • Methodology and New Developments,
  • Tagging Procedures,
  • Behavioural and Physiological Ecology,
  • Fish Migration,
  • Stock Management and Conservation.
Particular emphasis was put on tag miniaturisation, multiple functions and sampling strategies.
Papers concerned the effects of tags on fish for consolidating behavioural or original physiological investigations noticeably more open to the marine environment. Methods were essentially applied to study the relationships between fish and their natural environment.
Besides providing up-to-date information on the state of fish telemetry, the book illustrates the increase in spatial and temporal scales and the number of tracked fish which gives a statistical basis for field study in behavioural ecology.

`Overall, this is an interesting book with a wealth of useful detail for the working scientists; I am glad to have a copy on my bookshelf. Those who wish to catch up on the subject should enjoy dipping into selected papers.'
Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology, 244 (2000)
`... the book is an up-to-date compilation of present knowledge in fish and invertebrate telemetry. To conclude, I would recommend it to students and researchers working on aquatic animals, as it will certainly be useful for further studies.'
