About this book

Covering the basics as well as introducing modern procedures, "Fisheries Biology and Stock Assessment" emphasizes the processes involved in biological and fishery data collection and presents the fundamental concepts - population biology, ecology, and quantitative analysis - that underlie sound fisheries stock assessment practices. Illustrated by examples from both temperate and tropical regions, this book combines traditional stock assessment procedures with ecological analysis.
