Overview

How do fish populations regulate themselves? David Cushing explains how the effects of climatic changes in the sea have profound implications for the fate of fish larvae. This affects the recruitment of new adults into the population. If recruitment is poor, then fish stocks may fail. Dr Cushing explains that it is only by understanding such processes that we can hope to recognise the implications of global climate change for marine populations. This book will be essential reading for marine ecologists and fisheries biologists alike.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Fresh look at this age-old enigma, for marine biologists and fishery biologists to ponder." Fisheries

"...a comprehensive and current account of crucial linkages between the fate of marine fish larvae and subsequent population dynamics of juveniles and adults....a must-read for biological oceanographers and managers interested in fisheries population flucuations..." D. B. Eggleston, Choice

"Students of marine ecology and working fisheries biologists will find this book to be a stimulating source of ideas and questions. The text is clear and concise and the graphs and figures are easy to understand. This well-written book provides a valuable tool for the resource manager in the form of a review of published research and an extensive bibliography of the key marine production literature of the last century. It also points to the future of fisheries research, which will require collaboration between biologists and oceanographers." Douglas Clay, Environments

"The book is fascinating for its patient, detailed coverage....this volume is a major contribution to the study of a multidisciplinary issue in marine science....this book will find its most enthusiastic reception among professional oceanographers, fisheries scientists, and marine ecologists, for whom it should stimulate both discussion and collaboration." John J. Ney, The Quarterly Review of Biology
