Fish as an environmental indicator
Fish as an environmental indicator is the topic of a newly published report (in Swedish) from the Department of Aquatic Resources at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. The report describes how and why fish react to a variety of environmental and biological perturbations, including acidification, eutrophication, climate change, pollution, invasive species and fishing.
