This title, supported by CEFAS UK, contains important contributions from some of the world's leading specialists, and will be of keen interest to fishery stockists.Celebrating the centenary of the Centre for Environment Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (CEFAS) Fisheries Research Laboratory at Lowestoft, UK, this peer-reviewed, edited tome discusses four interwoven themes: The consequences and management of unregulated/unreported catches Competition External drivers and resource behaviour Ecosystems and migration With contributions from fisheries scientists, policy-makers and managers from more than twenty countries, this international volume has evolved from the CEFAS symposium on International Approaches to Management of Shared Fish Stock- Problems and Future Directions.
The editors, Andrew Payne, Carl Orsquo;Brien and Stuart Rogers, have succeeded in bringing together the research of over sixty participants into an essential source of reference for all those involved in, or studying, fisheries management across the globe. About the editors: The three editors are based at the CEFAS Lowestoft Laboratory. Andrew Payne is a fisheries scientist who heads Fisheries Management and was Director of Sea Fisheries in South Africa. He also edits the ICES Journal of Marine Science. Carl O'Brien joined the laboratory from the Brazilian Amazon, is a Chartered Statistician and a Fellow of the Linnean Society, and has edited for the Royal Statistical Society. He also chairs the ICES Resource Management Committee. Stuart Rogers is an advisor to the UK government on the ecosystem-based approach to management of human activities in the sea, and is a fish ecologist whose particular interests cover the demography and diversity of fish populations. He edits for the Journal of Fish Biology."In summary, the book is an excellent reflection on the complexity of the problems of the management of shared fish stocks. It shows how little manoeuvrability for real management action is and how much we are in need of exactly this."Archive of Fishery and Marine ResearchThe management of the world's dwindling fish stocks continues to be a major subject in world fisheries. In Management of Shared Fish Stocks, Andrew Payne examines all aspects of the industry. With chapters written by internationally respected fisheries scientists, this text considers major global concerns like resource availability to marketing and trade issues. The text includes a comprehensive examination of how fish stocks are shared in international waters and includes an analysis of different management approaches in adjacent jurisdictions. This subject is of commercial importance, and Management of Shared Fish Stocks will benefit worldwide fisheries scientists and managers, and all university and research establishments where aquaculture/fisheries is studied.
