This book provides eyewitness “good news” accounts of true stories of successful fishery management in action that have resulted in bringing fish populations from the brink of extinction to full recovery with viable naturally reproducing, self-sustaining, and productive populations. The text provides incontrovertible evidence that good things can indeed happen with well- thought out and implemented fish management programs, demonstrating that fishery professionals working together with their stakeholders can make a difference in restoring and maintaining fish and their habitats to productive levels.
Contains 22 case histories of fishery management success spanning rivers, lakes, and marine systems. Each account ends with the authors’ reflections of lessons learned that could be applied to other fisheries.
The book will be useful as a college text and invaluable to natural resources researchers, managers, and their allied publics.
