The Toxicology of Fishes is an in-depth, state-of-the-science monograph concerning the interactions of chemical contaminants with freshwater and marine fishes. It includes discussions of critical general principles, such as bioaccumulation, toxicokinetics, biotransformations, mechanisms of toxic action, and adaptations to chemical stress and key target systems of fishes, such as liver, kidney, gills, nervous and immune systems, and reproduction. It also covers methodologies and applications for exposure, assessment, toxicity testing, and ecological studies and includes case studies that illustrate the toxicological impacts of important classes of chemical contaminants in real-world settings.
