About this book

Over two million tonnes of hake from a dozen species are caught worldwide each year. Hake imported to the fish processing industry of developed nations is especially important in the commercial production of processed high value and high quality food. This book presents the stock biology and stock assessment, product and product development, and markets and economics of the major hake fisheries of the world. Each of the major world fisheries for hake is discussed in separate chapters by international experts. Coverage includes oceanographic features, seasonal changes, growth, migration, spawning, fleet and stock structure, current status and assessment in the fishery, current management, future prospects and the possibilities of current under-exploitation. Markets, products and quality aspects are also covered. This work should interest anyone working with the Merluccidae family of fishes, including fisheries workers, marine and fish biologists, ecologists, food scientists and technologists, purchasing and product development personnel and fish quality managers.
