Additional Information

A significant number of the world's ocean fisheries are depleted, and some have collapsed, from overfishing. Although many of the same fishermen who are causing these declines stand to suffer the most from them, they continue to overfish. Why is this happening? What can be done to solve the problem.The authors of "Fish, Markets, and Fishermen" argue that the reasons are primarily economic, and that overfishing is an inevitable consequence of the current sets of incentives facing ocean fishermen. This volume illuminates these incentives as they operate both in the aggregate and at the level of day-to-day decision-making by vessel skippers. The authors provide a primer on fish population biology and the economics of fisheries under various access regimes, and use that information in analyzing policies for managing fisheries. The book: provides a concise statistical overview of the world's fisheries documents the decline of fisheries worldwide gives the reader a clear understanding of the economics and population biology of fish examines the management issues associated with regulating fisheries offers case studies of fisheries under different management regimes examines and compares the consequences of various regimes and considers the implications for policy makingThe decline of the world's ocean fisheries is of enormous worldwide significance, from both economic and environmental perspectives. This book clearly explains for the nonspecialist the complicated problem of overfishing. It represents a basic resource for fishery managers and others-fishers, policymakers, conservationists, the fish consuming public, students, and researchers-concerned with the dynamics of fisheries and theirsustenance.

There are better books out there on economics and fishery management, but there don't appear to be any that combine the hard facts of those two subjects as fully as this book does. Well organized, with accessible writing and useful case studies from modern fisheries.
This book should fall into the lap of everyone involved in the fishing industry, ie. government officials, policy makers, lobbiests, commercial fishmen, recreational fishermen, concervationists etc. Anyone concerned with the oceans and the fish which live in them, this thoroughly researched book is an absolute must read. It is the greatest eye opener as to the decline of fish stocks around the world, how it happened and still continues.
