About this Book

"The economic importance of fishes and their societal and cultural relevance provide powerful incentives for large-scale, sustained studies of their dynamics"
-the Editors

The overall goal of this book is to give a picture of the present use of information on fish reproductive biology in assessment and management and its potential for improving management of these resources.

Compiled by an international team of authors, each an expert in their field, this exceptional volume is divided into three major sections:

  • Biology, population dynamics, and recruitment
  • Information critical to successful assessment and management
  • Incorporation of reproductive biology and recruitment considerations into management advice and strategies

Including over 100 diagrams, this book is essential reading for all fisheries scientists. Libraries in universities and research establishments where this subject is studied and taught should have copies on their shelves.

"As one author put it: the goal is to facilitate a 'dialogue between assessment scientists and biologists.' Readers of any specialty should accept this challenge, and this book is an excellent resource to aid them."
-Fisheries, March 2010
