About this book

This book explores not only the current practice of the ecosystem approach to fisheries management but also its critical importance to even larger perspectives. It includes an overview of how more and more of the complexity of real-world systems is being recognized and involved in the management of fisheries around the world and demonstrates how important aspects of real-world systems, involving population dynamics, evolution and behavior, remain to be taken into account completely.
