About this book

World Fisheries Resources provides a comprehensive and up-to-date review of how this commidity is used. The author examines the various aspects of fishing resources from their biological basis through to marketing and consumption. The subject is set in context by tracing the historical development, from its archaeological origins to the industrial expansion of the 19th and 20th centuries. The work comes up-to-date to discuss the modern situation and current trends in both the developed and developing worlds and highlights how exploitation of the resource has increased in recent years. The author also looks at the consequences of the special economic characteristics of common property and open entry and the effects they produce. The volume presents a systematic study of world distribution and trends with particular emphasis on the modern challenge of management at the local, national and international levels. The substantial and rapid modern expansion of recreational fishing and fish farming are recognised and analysed as are the pressures and complications of other sea uses.
