About this book

An edited, updated and wide-ranging collection of this renowned fisheries scientist's essays spanning his often controversial career.

'The writing and illustrations are of good quality.' Choice 'Who else but Mr Daniel Pauly would write a book on such 'boring' subjects as fish biology and dynamics of fish stocks and their management that would be informative, fun-to-read, and intellectually refreshing ... A gem of a book. I strongly recommend it not only to fishery biologists and managers ... but also to readers who not being fishery scientists are nevertheless interested in Daniel Pauly's views ... with his piquant wit, original thinking, clement irony and hopeless optimism.' World Fishing 'This collection of essays is highly thought provoking and also entertaining ... I thoroughly recommend this collection of essays to all those interested in fisheries science, but particularly to students in this field because of the enlightened approach of the author and the entertaining text that encourages you to read on.' Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology
