Ecosystem Approaches to Fisheries: A Global Perspective

Encouraged via the paintings of the well known fisheries scientist Daniel Pauly, this booklet presents an in depth review of ecosystem-based administration of fisheries. It explores the complicated and interdisciplinary nature of the topic by way of bringing jointly contributions from the various world's top fisheries scientists, managers and conservationists.

Conservation and Management of Transnational Tuna Fisheries

Conservation and administration of Transnational Tuna Fisheries experiences and synthesizes the prevailing literature, targeting rights-based administration and the construction of financial incentives to regulate transnational tuna fisheries. Transnational tuna fisheries are one of the most vital fisheries on the planet, and tuna commissions are more and more moving towards this strategy.

Sample text

Fish prices reflect the relationship between supply and demand and therefore indicate the scarcity of the resources. The prices themselves are an important determinant of development. Consumption and trade are determined by the relationships between prices for fish and prices for other food commodities and feedstuffs. Production (and overproduction) are determined by the relationships between the prices received by the producers and the costs of the inputs. With limited natural supplies and continually growing demand, the real prices of fish products Page 15 generally rise faster than both the prices of other food commodities and the prices of fishing inputs.

Production (and overproduction) are determined by the relationships between the prices received by the producers and the costs of the inputs. With limited natural supplies and continually growing demand, the real prices of fish products Page 15 generally rise faster than both the prices of other food commodities and the prices of fishing inputs. This has several effects, both positive and negative. It has stimulated the growth in aquaculture production of certain species, even to the point at which the increase in supplies has led to a decline in prices.

Aid and Cooperation Basic patterns have evolved in cooperation at a regional level. The cooperation takes place through three main kinds of structure: networks, multilateral regional bodies, and regional and international research centers. Examples of multilateral bodies are the FAO, the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC), and the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). ICLARM is one of the very few regional and international research centers. Page 4 The usefulness of aid to research is mixed.
