Abstract
    Methods developed since 1976 for harvesting, preparing and banding fish chromosomes are now commonly used for taxonomic and philogenetic studies, genetic control and chomosome manipulations in fish breeding and in monitoring aquatic pollutants by examining chromosomal aberrations. These studies have chiefly concerned common temperate freshwater species; the same procedures, when applied to marine and coldwater fish, often provide unsatisfactory results, especially in cell culture. A concerted effort should be made in marine fish, and to develop molecular cytogenetic methods to provide a more powerful tool to study chromosomal evolution.
