About this book

Demonstrates how we can apply the LME concept to the global management of marine resources. The Northeast Shelf is one of the 49 recognised LMEs on which the world's population depends for food, transportation and other non-renewable resources. All of these ecosystems are under measurable stresses from overfishing, pollution, and habitat degradation. This book, split into six sections, examines the degraded environment and the positive steps which need to be taken to improve the health and sustainability of one of the world's largest and most productive coastal ecosystems.
