The Fish Resources of Western Indonesia: A Baseline Study of Biodiversity

Overview

This book presents and analyzes data on fish resources collected in Western Indonesia - off Sumatra, Java, Bali, Southern Kalimantan (Borneo) and South of the Lesser Sunda Islands (Nusa Tenggara) - during bottom trawl surveys conducted from 1974 to 1981 by a variety of research vessels. Then gathered with the aim of fostering the development of bottom trawl fisheries, these data are shown here to identify fish communities that subsequent fishing has much altered, and whose diversity can be expected to gradually ...

Overview

This book presents and analyzes data on fish resources collected in Western Indonesia - off Sumatra, Java, Bali, Southern Kalimantan (Borneo) and South of the Lesser Sunda Islands (Nusa Tenggara) - during bottom trawl surveys conducted from 1974 to 1981 by a variety of research vessels. Then gathered with the aim of fostering the development of bottom trawl fisheries, these data are shown here to identify fish communities that subsequent fishing has much altered, and whose diversity can be expected to gradually decline upon exploitation (as implied by our cover design). These community descriptions, by an international cast of authors, are complemented by contributions on the historical background, and on the physical and conceptual contexts of the original surveys, reinterpreted as baseline studies of fish biodiversity.
