Overview

This unique volume addresses the potential implications of global warming for fisheries and the societies that depend on them. Using a forecasting by analogy approach, which draws on experiences from the recent past in coping with regional fluctuations in the abundance or availability of living marine resources, it shows how we might be able to assess our ability to respond to the consequences of future environmental changes induced by a potential global warming. The book takes the form of a series of integrated case studies from around the globe, which are presented by an interdisciplinary group of leading researchers.
