About this book

The peer reviewed articles in this book shed light on the intertwined effects of climate change and fishing pressure on the biggest fisheries in the Northern Hemisphere. Papers on cod, haddock, and pollock emphasize that healthier fish stocks are associated with more conservative catch limits in Alaska than those elsewhere, such as Atlantic Canada, the Northeastern US, and Europe. On the other hand, climate variability plays a very important role in gadid stocks and fisheries in all regions. Read about Atlantic cod rebuilding and fecundity off Canada, walleye pollock schooling and feeding, and shrinking haddock.

This symposium proceedings is a must have for scientists studying fisheries management and climate driven changes in groundfish fisheries worldwide.
