"Environmental physiology is now an important component of research in conservation biology. In fishes, energy metabolism is an aspect of physiology that is highly informative about how species adapt to their environment, and how they will tolerate climatic changes. There has been a surge in interest for measuring traits of energy metabolism in fishes but newcomers may find terminology and definitions confusing. Further, methods and protocols were dispersed throughout the literature, without much integration and critical comparison. This Special Issue is an essential guide for ecophysiologists that are planning experiments to measure the metabolic rate of fishes, with contributions by internationally renowned experts. It provides detailed reviews defining major traits of energy metabolism in fishes, with techniques and instructions to measure these. It also provides perspectives and reviews on how fish energy metabolism can be used for conservation research."
