Symposium 20: Proceedings from the symposium “Global Trends: Fisheries Management” held in Seattle, Washington, USA, June 14-16, 1994

This proceedings reflects cooperative efforts among education, research, and management communities worldwide to improve communication about the array of problems that face fisheries management: overfishing, overcapitalization, environmental degradation, habitat loss, and bycatch. The papers communicate trends in the fisheries themselves, trends in the scientific information available to guide fisheries management, and trends in the way fisheries are actually managed. This is an unparalleled overview of global fisheries management issues.

This book is intended for:

* managers, * researchers, * and anyone interested in the larger picture.
