In the sixteen years since the last edition of Von Brant's classic work was published, fishing and fisheries have undergone vast changes. Not only has there been great progress in the development of new tools, materials and techniques, but the industry has seen an increasing need to address controversial issues such as declining fish stocks, enormous quantities of bycatch and discard and the impact of towed fishing gear on the environment. Fully revised and updated to reflect such changes.
For those not familiar with the incredible range of gear types and fishing methods being employed, the book should hold a great deal of fascination.Reviews in Fisheries Science, November 2006 "This is a classic and most comprehensive reference available in this very wide subject. It was first published in 1964 and this is the fourth edition...it is undoubtedly a useful book and the best available."Ausmarine, January 2007
