  • The author

Otolith is a stone deposited within the inner ear of teleost fishes during their growth. There are three pairs of otoliths: sagittae, asteriscii and lapilli in inner ear, each of the pair locates in either side of the head. Most otoliths contain more than 95% by weight of calcium carbonate, with 3% - 5% in the form of an organic matrix, and less than 1% as non-organic trace impurities. The functions of otoliths are aiding in sound detection, balance and orientation in three dimensions. Otoliths have been used widely for studying for fisheries resources.
In this volume, the authors have organized their data collected during the surveys in the coastal waters of China in the recent years. This is to provide the basic information of otolith morphology for fish species identification, with the background of the study of fish feeding in China.
