About this book

This landmark book looks in detail at advances made in fisheries science since the publication in 1957 of On the Dynamics of Exploited Fish Populations (Beveton and Holt) regarded by most fisheries scientists as the most important fisheries book yet published.

Subjects covered include declines and changes in fishing fleets, fisheries management, behavior of fishers, reproductive dynamics and fish stock assessments, quantitative methods, modelling, statistics, fisheries ecology and ecosystem management and change, fish life histories and new technologies.

This important book, edited by widely respected fisheries scientist Andrew Payne and containing contributions by world-renowned fisheries scientists, including many based at CEFAS (where Beverton and Holt's original work was carried out) is an essential purchase for all fisheries managers and scientists, fish biologists, marine scientists and ecologists.
