Overview

Geographic Information Systems in Fisheries

Geographic Information Systems in Fisheries was developed to summarize a growing body of information on applications of geographic information systems (GIS) in fisheries research and management. It is the first book of its kind that provides examples of GIS applications for all components of a fishery (i.e., organisms, habitats, and people), in both freshwater and marine environments. The book is intended for use by fisheries students and professionals alike.

This book is written as a reference for fisheries scientists who are interested in using GIS as a tool for solving fisheries management problems. The book introduces ways GIS can be applied to fisheries, identifies challenges associated with using GIS in aquatic environments, reviews fisheries applications of GIS in freshwater (streams, rivers, lakes, and reservoirs) and marine (nearshore and offshore) environments and in aquaculture, examines GIS as a tool for fisheries decision making, and concludes with the future of GIS in fisheries.
