The effects of fishing on non-target species and habitats

biological, conservation and socio-economic issues


Description

"Fishing is a major form of ecological disturbance to aquatic communities throughout the world. In the past, many fisheries biologists have concentrated on the study of direct effect of fishing on stocks of target species and understanding the processes of recruitment. However, there is now a growing appreciation of the ecological implications of the wider effects of fishing activities on aquatic organisms and their habitats." "The editors of this book have drawn together an impressive collection of internationally-recognised experts in these areas of research. This comprehensive book will be an invaluable reference source for all those studying and researching in the areas of fisheries science, fish and aquatic biology and environmental science, marine biology, oceanography and ecology."--Jacket.
