About this book

Foundations of Fisheries Science highlights the classic and critical works associated with fisheries management. With input from fisheries professionals and students from around the world, the editors selected 43 full-text articles along with 30 "honourable mention" citations (with associated abstracts) that have helped to mould the discipline of fisheries science. The selected articles were represented by 21 journals, ranging in discipline from fisheries, ecology, human dimensions, and others.

Foundations of Fisheries Science is organized into five sections which represent the critical components of fisheries (fish, humans, habitat) and the most common management approaches (regulations, stocking, habitat protection/restoration):
Section 1. Managing Fish Stocks
Section 2. Managing People
Section 3. Managing Fish Habitat
Section 4. Managing Fish Communities and Ecosystems
Section 5. Managing Fisheries Enhancements

Section editors provide insightful commentaries highlighting and summarizing the articles presented in each section. Foundations of Fisheries Science can be used as a reference, or as a textbook to lead undergraduate and graduate courses and discussions.
