Overview

Comprehensive, concise, and authoritative, and based on critical examination of hundreds of scientific studies, Marine Ecosystems: Behaviour and Management is an in-depth appraisal of the nature and dynamics of marine ecosystems; their productivity, their basis for fisheries, and ecosystem management. The various types of marine ecosystems are described, and the ways in which they function are analysed, with emphasis on the behaviour of fish ecosystems, and the possible effects of man on marine resources. The effects of fishing on stocks and the marine ecosystems at large are explained and critically compared to naturally occurring fluctuations of fish stocks and marine ecosystems.
