About this book

Marine invertebrate resources are widely exploited worldwide, and they are important to the economies of both developed and developing nations. This comprehensive sourcebook provides the foundation for a resource management strategy that ensures consistent, abundant annual harvests, while maintaining stable invertebrate populations. It examines the dynamics of some 30 invertebrate populations, with reference to the ecological, social, and economic implications of resource management. There are examples from tropical, temperate, and Arctic ecosystems. Special topics include fishery forecasting models and trap selection.


Crustacean fisheries; Antarctic krill fisheries; potential resources and ecological concerns; fisheries for northern shrimp in the northwest Atlantic from Greenland to the Gulf of Maine; resource assessment and management perspectives on the penaeid prawn fisheries of Western Australia; the west Australian rock lobster fishery; research for management; northwest Atlantic snow crab fisheries; lessons in research and management; molluscan and other invertebrate harvests; the Californian abalone fishery; production, ecological interactions and prospects for the future; conservation and management of queen conch fisheries in the Caribbean; the Chesapeake Bay oyster fishery; traditional management practices; clam fisheries with hydraulic dredges in the Adriatic sea; fisheries for giant clams (tridacnidae bivalvia) and prospects for stock enhancement.
