About the Authors
  • Showing how big-picture patterns can help overcome the failures of conventional management, this book is ideal for students, researchers and professionals involved with marine fisheries. It explores not only the current practice of the 'ecosystem approach' to fisheries management but also its critical importance to even larger perspectives. The first section gives a valuable overview of how more and more of the complexity of real-world systems is being recognized and involved in the management of fisheries around the world. The second section then demonstrates how important aspects of real-world systems, involving population dynamics, evolution and behavior, remain to be taken into account completely. This section also shows how we must change the way we think about our involvement in, and the complexity of, marine ecosystems. The final chapters consider how, with the use of carefully chosen macroecological patterns, we can take important steps towards more holistic management of marine fisheries.

    • Demonstrates how macroecology can be used in interdisciplinary forms of management
    • Presents examples of current forms of management, helping readers to understand the progress that has been made in accounting for complexity
    • Provides projections for the future evolution of fisheries management, illustrating the magnitude of the changes needed to achieve holistic management

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… this book demonstrates that EA [ecosystem approaches] can be tools for greater understanding and better management of fisheries and the ecosystems that nurture them. The various chapters … do an excellent job of pointing out, for the ecosystems they document, which component, judiciously chosen, would lead to improved fisheries management and ecosystem resilience. This approach makes the book … an excellent compendium of case studies.' Ecology
