In a perfect ocean : the state of fisheries and ecosystems in the North Atlantic Ocean by D Pauly( )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 2,382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a Perfect Ocean is the first in a series of assessments of the world's marine ecosystems. In this first comprehensive, empirical portrait of the North Atlantic, the authors use traditional catch data and cutting-edge scientific techniques to provide an indisputable picture of an ocean whose food webs have been dramatically altered. They then explain how the North Atlantic arrived at this state, and how we can return it to health."--Jacket
5 easy pieces : how fishing impacts marine ecosystems by D Pauly( )

13 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five Easy Pieces features five contributions, originally published in Nature and Science, demonstrating the massive impacts of modern industrial fisheries on marine ecosystems. Initially published over an eight-year period, from 1995 to 2003, these articles illustrate a transition in scientific thought--from the initially-contested realization that the crisis of fisheries and their underlying ocean ecosystems was, in fact, global to its broad acceptance by mainstream scientific and public opinion. Daniel Pauly, a well-known fisheries expert who was a co-author of all five articles, presents each original article here and surrounds it with a rich array of contemporary comments, many of which led Pauly and his colleagues to further study. In addition, Pauly documents how popular media reported on the articles and their findings. By doing so, he demonstrates how science evolves. In one chapter, for example, the popular media pick up a contribution and use Pauly's conclusions to contextualize current political disputes; in another, what might be seen as nitpicking by fellow scientists leads Pauly and his colleagues to strengthen their case that commercial fishing is endangering the global marine ecosystem. This structure also allows readers to see how scientists' interactions with the popular media can shape the reception of their own, sometimes controversial, scientific studies. In an epilog[ue], Pauly reflects on the ways that scientific consensus emerges from discussions both within and outside the scientific community. --Publisher description
Darwin's fishes : an encyclopedia of ichthyology, ecology, and evolution by D Pauly( )

22 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Darwin's Fishes, Daniel Pauly presents an encyclopedia of ichthyology, ecology, and evolution, based upon everything that Charles Darwin ever wrote about fish. Entries are arranged alphabetically and can be about, for example, a particular fish taxon, an anatomical part, a chemical substance, a scientist, a place, or an evolutionary or ecological concept. Readers can start wherever they like and are then led by a series of cross-references on a voyage of interconnected entries, each indirectly or directly connected with writings from Darwin himself. Along the way, the reader is offered interpretation of the historical material put in the context of both Darwin's time and that of contemporary biology and ecology." "This book is intended for anyone interested in fish, the work of Charles Darwin, evolutionary biology and ecology, and natural history in general."--Jacket
Global atlas of marine fisheries : a critical appraisal of catches and ecosystem impacts by Daniel Pauly; Dirk Zeller( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until now, there has been only one source of data on global fishery catches: information reported to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations by member countries. An extensive, ten-year study conducted by The Sea Around Us Project of the University of British Columbia shows that this catch data is fundamentally misleading. Many countries underreport the amount of fish caught (some by as much as 500%), while others such as China significantly overreport their catches. The Global Atlas of Marine Fisheries is the first and only book to provide accurate, country-by-country fishery data. This groundbreaking information has been gathered from independent sources by the world's foremost fisheries experts, and edited by Daniel Pauly and Dirk Zeller of the Sea Around Us Project. The Atlas includes one-page reports on 272 nations or regions, plus fourteen topical global chapters. National reports describe the state of the country's fishery, by sector; the policies, politics, and social factors affecting it; and potential solutions. The global chapters address cross-cutting issues, from the economics of fisheries to the impacts of mariculture. Extensive maps and graphics offer attractive and accessible visual representations. While it has long been clear that the world's oceans are in trouble, the lack of reliable data on fishery catches has obscured the scale, and nuances, of the crisis. The Atlas shows that, globally, catches have declined rapidly since the 1980s, signaling an even more critical situation than previously understood.--
Ecology of tropical oceans by Alan R Longhurst( Book )

11 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book breaks new ground with the integration of geography, oceanography, plankton and benthic biology, as well as fish, to present a comprehensive account of the ecology of the tropical ocean. Proceeding from a description of the geomorphology, sediments, and vegetation of tropical continental shelves and the oceanography of tropical regions, the authors describe the benthos, plankton, and fish communities of tropical seas. An examination of the production of plant and animal life in tropical oceans is presented together with the numerical population biology of fish and invertebrates

World small-scale fisheries : contemporary visions by Ratana Chuenpagdee( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Red Sea ecosystem and fisheries by Dawit Tesfamichael( )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the first comprehensive coverage of Red Sea fisheries to inform researchers and decision makers. The Red Sea is a geologically young sea, but also an area with the oldest record of human sea food exploitation. Examining the fisheries of the Red Sea has become extremely important to understand the ecosystem and the direct human impact of fishing on Red Sea ecosystems. This volume gives extensive data on different fisheries sectors identified and described for each country bordering the Red Sea. Furthermore, its catch and specific composition is also described over the period 1950 to 2010. Combined with the ecosystem model this useful information can uniquely help managing fisheries and ecosystems of the Red Sea
Reinventing fisheries management by Tony J Pitcher( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Judged by a dismaying track record and a consequent downturn in the reputation of fisheries scientists, fisheries management is certainly a candidate for calls for reinvention, with many of the world leaders in this area holding the view that no fishery has ever been properly understood or managed. With fisheries science in a state of flux, this extremely important book seeks a new paradigm that will place this flux of ideas in perspective and help us to choose those that will make fisheries management work. <br/> The book was planned at a symposium of over 100 fishery researchers at the Fisheries Centre, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada and is organized into five parts: Why does Fisheries Science Need Reinventing?; New Policies; The Role of the Social Sciences; Ecology; Modelling. <br/> Carefully integrated and edited by three of the world's leading fishery scientists, this stimulating book should find a place on the shelves of all fishery scientists throughout the world. It will be an invaluable reference source to those studying fish biology, fisheries and oceanography and all those involved in fisheries policy decisions in government and university research establishments
