Fisheries throughout North America are faced with serious threats to their sustainability. Some of the key factors challenging fisheries sustainability include human population growth, overfishing, habitat alteration and destruction, water quality impairment, aquacultural operations, introduction of alien species, and global climate change. New management approaches and institutional structures are needed that integrate economic, social, and environmental interests into a decision-making framework that supports fisheries sustainability.
In Sustainable Management of North American Fisheries, recognized leaders in the fields of sustainability, science, and environmental management examine the most important constraints on fisheries sustainability, and provide a blueprint for maintaining and restoring healthy aquatic and marine systems in North America, as well as the important fisheries that they support.
