About this book

To date, research on the economic implications of climate change on fisheries has been both limited and fragmented. The contributors to this volume remedy the lack of attention by investigating the economic consequences of pelagic fish fluctuations in the recent past in order to understand how to adapt and respond to future climate changes.

Contents:
1. Global Warming, Small Pelagic Fisheries and Risk
2. The Collapse of the Norwegian Herring Fisheries in the late 1950s, 1960s and 1970s: Crisis, Adaption and Recovery
3. Sharing the Herring: Fish Migrations, Strategic Advantage and Climate Change
4. Rise and Fall of the Herring Towns: Impacts of Climate and Human Telecommunications
5. An Optimal Harvest Policy for the Recently Renewed United States Pacific Sardine Fishery
6. Long-term Harvest Strategies for Small Pelagic Fisheries under Regime Shifts: The South African Fishery for Pilchard and Anchovy
7. Declines in Namibia's Pilchard Catch: The Reasons and Consequences
8. Climate Change and Small Pelagic Fisheries in Developing Asia: Analysis of the Economic Consequences for Fish Producers and Consumers
9. Bi-national Management of a Transboundary Marine Fishery: Modeling the Destabilizing Impacts of Erratic Climate Shifts
10. Prototype of an Integrated Model of the Worldwide System of Small Pelagic Fisheries
11. On the Consequences of Climate Change in Pelagic Fish Populations: A Conclusion
