Successful Fisheries Management

Issues, Case Studies, Perspectives

More than eighty percent of the world’s fish population lives in fisheries. At the same time, nearly three-quarters of the world’s most important fish species face extinction due to overfishing and environmental contamination. Successful Fisheries Management explores the possibilities for effective and sustainable fisheries management across the globe. Seven case studies examine both the successes and failures of fisheries from India to Australia to Senegal. Experts in their field, the contributors offer their audience a unique and absolutely essential examination of international fisheries management.
