This book is a multidisciplinary volume that overviews the most recent literature covering the physiology, biomechanics, evolution, and ecology of tunas. It examines critical areas of molecular and organismal physiology, phylogeny, ecology, and evolutionary biology. Recently developed techniques for electronic tagging of fish are presented. The book covers all aspects of tuna biology, from metabolism and cardiovascular research to reproductive biology. It contains a comprehensive review of tuna biology and provides a synthesis of archival and pop-up satellite tag technology in tunas. It covers the phylogenetics of modern tunas and includes color plates on morphology, physiology, ecology, and oceanography.
