"I am frequently asked to recommend a textbook which will provide
fisheries science students with a firm grounding in fish biology,
the collection and analysis of data and its application to fisheries management.
This will be it from now on!... I recommend this both as a course text
to students and a technical manual to more experienced
practitioners." Journal of Fish Biology
"We have here a fine textbook indeed, especially useful to students
in marine and fisheries biology." World Fishing
"Comprehensive as well as interesting to read." Seafood International
As the over-exploitation of fish stocks continues on a global scale, the need
to develop and enhance skills in fisheries assessment and management
becomes ever-more urgent if we are to ensure that fish remain
a renewable resource providing employment and food.
Fisheries Biology, Assessment and Management is a new, core text which
provides essential information and expert guidance on modern methods
of resources management for both temperate and tropical fisheries and is directed
to students of marine science and biology and fisheries researchers,
scientists, and managers.
Modern catching methods are reviewed in full, analyses of fisheries
resource species are provided, from invertebrates (such as sea cucumbers)
to migratory fish species (such as Tuna) and, unlike other available texts,
Fisheries Biology, Assessment and Management contains a large number
of worked examples and numerous graphs, charts, diagrams and line drawings.
This new work is destined to become the foundation text and leading
reference in this vital area of fisheries science, and is one of several titles
available on inspection for lecturers and course tutors wishing
to evaluate textbooks for potential class use.
