Manual of Fish Eggs and Larvae from Asian Mangrove Waters
The highly productive mangrove waters of the tropics and subtropics serve as a nursery ground for many marine fish, crustacean and mollusc species of considerable economic importance and nutritional value. A major part of the life cycle of brackish water fish and a few stages of freshwater species are also supported by this ecosystem rich in nutrients. This manual lists 77 species and provides an understanding of the significance of mangroves in supporting the coastal fisheries resources.
