  • Bill Ricker: An Appreciation

    Bill Ricker: An Appreciation

    This book is the first complete biography of one of the founders of fishery science, William Edwin (Bill) Ricker (1908 - 2001). Bill is immortalized in the Ricker Curve. He developed the Curve in his studies of stock and recruitment in fisheries, but it has been widely applied in many areas of science. Bill is best known for his contributions to fishery science, but he was also internationally recognized as an entomologist and a scientific ...

  • Biology of Skates

    Biology of Skates

    Skates have become a concern in recent years due to the preponderance of these elasmobranchs that are caught as bycatch or as a directed fishery. This has raised concern because skates have life history characteristics that may make them vulnerable to over-exploitation. It was due to this concern that prompted Drs. David Ebert and James Sulikowski to organize an international symposium on the "Biology of Skates". The aims and goals of the ...

  • By-catch Reduction in the World´s Fisheries

    By-catch Reduction in the World´s Fisheries

They take the reader through most aspects of the field at a variety of scales and viewp

  • Comparative Evaluations of Innovative Fisheries Management

    Comparative Evaluations of Innovative Fisheries Management

    Comparative Evaluations of Innovative Fisheries Management begins with a look at four places outside the European Union known for innovative management: New Zealand, Nova Scotia, Alaska and Iceland. Then the focus shifts to the success criteria related to specific disciplines including biological and social robustness, economic efficiency and impacts on management costs. Hypotheses are tested using data capable of generating useful results. The ...

  • Computers in Fisheries Research

    Computers in Fisheries Research

    This is the second edition of a book that reviews current and future computer trends in fisheries science applications. The first edition was published 10 years ago. Individuals have been quick to realize the potential of computers in fisheries and scientists continue to take advantage of the rapidly advancing tools and technology. This book provides a valuable sampling of contemporary applications and in some cases compares recent developments ...

  • Echinodermata

    Echinodermata

    Members of the phylum Echinodermata are among the most familiar marine invertebrates. Forms such as the sea star have become virtually a symbol of sea life. Used in ancient oriental medicine as a source of bioactive compounds, sea cucumbers, sea stars and sea urchins are now used for the extraction and purification of cytotoxic, haemolytic, antiviral, antifungal, antifouling, antimicrobial and even anti-tumoural activities. In addition, of the ...

  • Fishing, Foraging and Farming in the Bolivian Amazon

    Fishing, Foraging and Farming in the Bolivian Amazon

    Empirical in character, this book analyses the society-nature interaction of the Tsimane’, a rural indigenous community in the Bolivian Amazon. Following a common methodological framework, the material and energy flow (MEFA) approach, it gives a detailed account of the biophysical exchange relations the community entertains with its natural environment: the socio-economic use of energy, materials, land and time. Equally so, the book provides a ...

  • Inshore Fisheries Management

    Inshore Fisheries Management

    Despite their importance in terms of employment and income generation, inshore fisheries have been a neglected area of study. The review of the common fisheries policy, especially in the light of the need to re-examine the derogation which reserves access to the inshore zone to coastal state vessels, provides an opportunity to redress the balance. With contributions from leading authorities on fisheries management, the book takes an ...

  • Issues of Decapod Crustacean Biology

    Issues of Decapod Crustacean Biology

    This volume presents the proceedings of the eighth Colloquium Crustacea Decapoda Mediterranea, which was held at the Ionian University on Corfu Island, Greece, from 2 to 6 September 2002, and reflects recent advances in decapod crustacean research. The meeting is the oldest European carcinological event, organized regularly at 3-year intervals since 1972. Although focused on the Mediterranean Sea, worldwide contributions provided a forum for ...

  • Making Fisheries Management Work

    Making Fisheries Management Work

    The state of the Northeast Atlantic fisheries in recent years has highlighted implementation as the Achilles heel of modern fisheries management: discards, unreported or misreported landings are in many cases recognised to effectively subvert sound conservation goals. Implementation is thus a key factor in avoiding fisheries crises. While social science literature on fisheries management has tended to regard the implementation of resource ...

  • Regulation and Compliance in the Atlantic Fisheries

    Regulation and Compliance in the Atlantic Fisheries

    Why and under what conditions are the state's regulations complied with, and when are they violated? Resource scarcity and strict regulation of the Atlantic fisheries have generated a demand for in-depth knowledge of this issue. This comparative study is based on qualitative data from Norway and Newfoundland. It shows that informal social control is a major factor inhibiting violations of formal management regulations among fishermen, and it ...

  • The Fish Oocyte

    The Fish Oocyte

    This book addresses the growing needs in deciphering the biological processes associated with fish reproduction, in view of the growth of aquaculture and the dwindling natural stocks of commercially important fish. It presents a comprehensive overview on egg production in fish, from the standpoint of the oocyte. With this view in mind, the book includes chapters on oocyte development (oogenesis), hormonal regulation and hormone receptors, ...

  • The Fish Production Potential of the Baltic Sea

    The Fish Production Potential of the Baltic Sea

    It presents a new approach to set fish quota based on holistic ecosystem modeling (the CoastWeb-model) and also a plan to optimize a sustainable management of the Baltic Sea including a cost-benefit analysis. This plan accounts for the production of prey and predatory fish under different environmental conditions, professional fishing, recreational fishing and fish cage farm production plus an analysis of associated economic values. Several ...

  • The Fisheries Co-management Experience

    The Fisheries Co-management Experience

    For two decades the idea of governments and fishers working together to manage fisheries has been advocated, questioned, disparaged and, most importantly, attempted in fisheries from North and South America through Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania. This book is the first time these experiences have been pulled together in a single volume, summarized and explained. The Fisheries Co-management Experience begins with a review of the intellectual ...
