Cellular and Molecular Approaches in Fish Biology is a highly interdisciplinary resource that will bring industry professionals up-to-date on the latest developments and information on fish biology research. The book combines an historical overview of the different research areas in fish biology with detailed descriptions of cellular and molecular approaches and recommendations for research. It provides different points-of-view on how researchers have addressed timely issues, while also describing and dissecting some of the new experimental/analytical approaches used to answer key questions at cellular and molecular levels.

Key Features

  • Provides detailed descriptions of each research approach, highlighting the tricks of the trade for its effective and successful application
  • Includes the latest developments in fish reproduction, fish nutrition, fish wellbeing, ecology and toxicology
  • Presents hot topic areas of research, including genetic editing, epigenetics and eDNA


Anyone in the fisheries sector, scientists and researchers, fisheries managers, marine resource managers, marine biologists, fish farmers, marine ecologists, policy makers, leaders and regulators, operations researchers, as well as faculty and students. Students in marine bio/fisheries/aquatic science

Jorge Fernandes

Jorge Fernandes

Dr. Jorge Manuel de Oliveira Fernandes is a professor in genomics at Nord University (Norway). Dr. Fernandes is an expert in muscle growth and innate immunity in teleosts, with focus on the epigenetic regulation of gene networks in commercially important species, such as Nile tilapia and Atlantic salmon. He has an established track record of high-standard research, with 96 publications in peer-reviewed journal, and editor of one book and contributed two book chapters. Dr. Fernandes has participated in 14 research projects (4 as PI), including a prestigious ERC Consolidator grant to investigate the importance of epigenetic mechanisms on fish domestication. He serves on the editorial board of several scientific journals and is often invited as an external reviewer of grant proposals for international organisations. Dr Fernandes has been awarded the annual research prize at Nord University on two occasions and he has received the Outstanding Young Investigator grant from the Research Council of Norway in 2008.
