Advances in Marine Biology has been providing in-depth and up-to-date reviews on all aspects of marine biology since 1963--over 40 years of outstanding coverage! The series is well known for its excellent reviews and editing. Now edited by Michael Lesser (University of New Hampshire, USA) with an internationally renowned Editorial Board, the serial publishes in-depth and up-to-date content on many topics that will appeal to postgraduates and researchers in marine biology, fisheries science, ecology, zoology, and biological oceanography. Volumes cover all areas of marine science, both applied and basic, a wide range of topical areas from all areas of marine ecology, oceanography, fisheries management and molecular biology and the full range of geographic areas from polar seas to tropical coral reefs.

This volume, with an introduction by Ray Hilborn, will present the latest views on the use of MPAs or Marine Managed Areas for fisheries management. It will contain a wide range of case studies including the Chagos archipelago, South Georgia, the Caribbean, the North Sea, Florida, Hawaii, Great Barrier Reef, California, Mediterraneanand the Phoenix Islands Protected Area. It is the intention of the editors that the volume presents a series of evidence based rather than advocacy driven contemporary reviews.

About the Serial Volume Editors

Magnus Johnson

Dr Magnus Johnson is a Senior Lecturer in Environmental and Marine Sciences at the University of Hull. Having spent his formative years in the Shetland Isles, immersed in fishing culture, he has always had a strong relationship with the sea and an affinity for fisherfolk. He has research interests in an eclectic array of topics including shrimp eyes, cleaner fish, krill behaviour, tropical ecology, shrimp taxonomy, lobster ecology and the interaction of windfarms and fisheries. He recently edited a volume in the Advances Series on Nephrops norvegicus. He is an associate editor for the Journal of Crustacean Biology and consultant editor for the Marine Stewardship Council’s Science Series. He is currently the Hull University lead on an £3 million FP7 project that is developing hatchery technology for Nephrops and looking at protocols for improving their survival as discards. In his spare time Magnus is a member of the Slow Fish movement which advocates better knowledge for the consumer of what we are eating, easier access to quality local marine produce and a “broad footprint lightly trod”.

Jane Sandell

Jane Sandell has been the Quota Manger for the Scottish Fishermen's Organisation for just over five years. After finishing a postgraduate degree in Fisheries Science at the International Fisheries Institute at Hull University, she joined the Yorkshire and Humber Seafood Group, where she managed fisheries development projects for the region. In 2006, Jane joined the Scottish Fishermen's Federation as a Policy Officer, taking the lead on a variety of policy themes including a number of marine spatial planning issues. Although primarily employed to manage the quota for 200 UK registered fishing vessels, a considerable amount of Janes time is spent writing, negotiating and advising on fisheries policy at European, UK and domestic level including taking the Scottish industry lead on the implementation of the new Common Fisheries Policy. In addition to her professional experience, Jane has a good understanding of the trials and tribulations of running demersal fishing vessels.
