Abstract

Chemicals released by fishes often have powerful effects on exposed conspecifics. Evolved cues that are species-wide and innately recognized are known as pheromones, whereas those that are learned are known as signature mixtures. Functions range from conspecific recognition to synchronization of various reproductive activities. This book describes all of these functions, what we know about the ecological and physiological mechanisms that mediate these functions and their ramifications to the well being and use of fishes.
