The current high demand for fish and increased awareness of the role of the environment in supporting human well being has led to a situation where attitudes to inland water resources are changing rapidly.
Trends in resource use and environmental impact are very evident in inland waters which are particularly vulnerable as they act as collectors of all the activities occurring in their basins and rank as some of the most endangered ecosystems in the world. The principle changes influencing the evolution of the aquatic resource for fisheries are described in Inland Fisheries, which has been compiled for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
... of great use to the practitioner who needs one easy--to--use source of more detailed references. (Fish and Fisheries) "Inland fisheries are a complex subject that is well covered in this first rate book." (Fishing Boat World) "This book bridges the gap between books on aquaculture and those on fisheries from our ocean waters. It will serve as an essential reference for those involved in inland fisheries management" (Aquaculture Magazine)
