The sea trout is an important fish species both commercially and recreationally but until recently it has been largely neglected and overshadowed by interest in salmon. In July 2004 a major international conference was convened, attracting world class international scientists who have contributed to this most important volume. The contents are broadly divided into four sections covering: stocks and fisheries; genetics and life history; ecology and population dynamics; and managing stocks and world fisheries. The book is an essential purchase for many fisheries managers and fish biologists.
