About the Authors
  • Inspired by the work of the renowned fisheries scientist Daniel Pauly, this book provides a detailed overview of ecosystem-based management of fisheries. It explores the complex and interdisciplinary nature of the subject by bringing together contributions from some of the world's leading fisheries scientists, managers and conservationists. Combining both research reviews and opinion pieces, and reflecting the breadth of Pauly's influence within the field, the book illustrates the range of issues associated with the implementation of the ecosystem approach and the challenge of long-term sustainability. Topics covered include global biodiversity, the impact of human actions on marine life, the implications for economic and social systems and the role of science in communicating and shaping ocean policy to preserve resources for the future. This book provides a complete and essential overview for advanced researchers and those just entering the field.

    • An accessible overview for both advanced researchers and those just entering the field
    • Provides a review of current research in the field, based on the work of the renowned fisheries scientist Daniel Pauly
    • Features contributions from some of the world's leading fisheries scientists, managers and conservationists

    Reviews & endorsements

    'An inspiring book dedicated to an immensely influential scientist, Daniel Pauly, who convinced his colleagues, that 'thinking big' and developing generic tools, global databases as well as innovative ecological ideas, can empower scientists and forge a better future for marine fisheries. A coherent collection of essays by renowned authors that jointly explains ecosystem approaches to fisheries - a pure delight.' Philippe Cury, Institut de Recherche pour le Développement

    'The area of scholarship conjured by this title is one of growing practical importance with a burgeoning literature, but much of it of questionable professional standard. This is different: sixteen chapters written by well-respected scientists, all acknowledging inspiration by Professor Daniel Pauly. It is not comprehensive - the subject is too young to allow that - but the wide-ranging articles are stimulating and point the rest of us in a productive direction, covering broad marine ecological issues, management problems and what the editors call 'the human side': good use of coastal resources, localised fisheries, capacity building and economics.' Dr Sidney Holt
