Description

Introduction to the Fishery Sciences provides a broad introduction into the study of aquatic organisms and ecology of fisheries and some of the legal, social, and political aspects of their use. The book is intended to be used by students and those who want to broaden their knowledge on the science of fishery. The text provides discussions on a wide range of topics such as trends in foodfish production; managing of fishery aquatic environment; identification and classification of fishery resources; and fishery resource management.
Limnologists, freshwater biologists, ecologists, fisheries managers, and students in fisheries science will find the book a good reference material.
