Based on papers presented at the 5th World Recreational Fishing Conference, this timely book focuses on the interactions between recreational anglers and the aquatic environment. Among the many emerging issues covered in the book are the consequences of various fishing rights for sustainable recreational fisheries; partnership approaches among the recreational fishing industry, managers, and researchers for solving sustainability challenges; biological impacts of recreational fisheries; the ethics of the sport; and innovative survey methods for assessing recreational fisheries.
This volume will appeal to anyone interested in recreational fisheries management and policy.
