Description

Northeast Pacific Shark Biology, Research and Conservation, Part A, Volume 77 highlights the biological attributes of, and the conservation efforts targeted at, populations of vulnerable sharks in the Northeastern Pacific Ocean bordering the west coast of the United States, one of the most economically and ecologically important oceanic regions in the world. Updates in this new volume include chapters on Biodiversity, Conservation and Life History of Northeastern Pacific Chondrichthyans, a Review of current genetic analyses of Northeast Pacific sharks and conservation implications, and a section on the Trophodynamics and ecological impacts of eastern North Pacific sharks.

Key Features

  • Brings together subject experts on all aspects of shark biology, ecology, fishery management and conservation
  • Summarizes current knowledge
  • Focuses scientific attention on key issues embedded in the concept of shark conservation, both from a species and an ecosystem perspective

Readership

The community of scientists and academics actively engaged in marine conservation in the Northeastern Pacific Ocean and beyond; members of the commercial and recreational fishing sector that target sharks, as well as their competitors and prey; and fishery policy makers and implementers
