One of the greatest successes of the book is the illustration of how things are working in particular case studies and the lessons learnt from these examples."
Journal of Fish Biology, February 2006

"Professionals and students in fisheries science, marine biology, ecology, conservation and environmental biology will find this book to be extremely valuable."
