About this book

This book contains the peer-reviewed technical papers presented at a June 2003 symposium examining the effective use of fish culture as a tool for fisheries resource management.

The symposium identified information gaps in technical knowledge, debated the appropriateness of assumptions and current theories being used to make resource management decisions, and attempted to reconcile philosophical differences that have become an obstacle to science-based resource management. Ten AFS Sections collaborated in this effort that showcased several themes:

*Decision Making and Risk Evaluation in Fish Stocking
*Fishery Perspectives and Managing for Multiple Goals
*Differences Between Propagated Fish and Wild Fish
*Fish Health, Environmental Health and Hatchery Reform
*Propagated Fish and Resource Management-Science & Agency Perspectives
