Understanding fish behavior in relation to potential commercial capture methods is of fundamental importance to reducing commercial bycatch and marine fisheries conservation efforts. A more thorough understanding of fish behaviors and responses to fishing gear will allow commercial fishers to more effectively capture target species while reducing the catch of unwanted species. Behavior of Marine Fishes provides the reader with basic behavioral principles and patterns, information on fish behavior and fish capture processes using several types of common fishing gear, and challenges facing the marine fisheries industry in efforts to maintain sustainable use of marine resources. This volume, with contributions from leading applied fish behaviorists and fishing gear technologists from around the world, will be a valuable reference for researchers, fishing gear technologists, fisheries managers, students, and conservationists.
