About this book

The book describes the conceptual basis and current management practices for freshwater fisheries of North America. This third edition is written by an array of new authors who bring novel and innovative perspectives. The book incorporates recent technological and social developments and uses pertinent literature to support the presented concepts and methods.

Covered topics include the process of fisheries management, fishery assessments, habitat and community manipulations, and the common practices for managing stream, river, lake, and reservoir fisheries. Chapters on history, population dynamics, assessing fisheries, regulation of fisheries, use of hatchery fish, and the process and legal framework of fisheries management are included along with innovative chapters on scales of fisheries management, communication and conflict resolution, managing undesired and invading species, ecological integrity, emerging multispecies approaches, and use of social and economic information.

The book is intended for use in fisheries management courses for undergraduate or graduate students, as well as for practicing fisheries managers.
