The overall goal of this book is to give a picture of the present use of information on fish reproductive biology in assessment and management and its potential for improving management of these resources.
Compiled by an international team of authors, each an expert in their field, this exceptional volume is divided into three major sections:Biology, population dynamics, and recruitment Information critical to successful assessment and management Incorporation of reproductive biology and recruitment considerations into management advice and strategies
Including over 100 diagrams, this book is essential reading for all fisheries scientists. Libraries in universities and research establishments where this subject is studied and taught should have copies on their shelves.
"As one author put it: the goal is to facilitate a 'dialogue between assessment scientists and biologists.' Readers of any specialty should accept this challenge, and this book is an excellent resource to aid them."

Fishery Products brings together details of all the major methodologies used to assess the quality of fishery products in the widest sense. Subject coverage of this important book includes chapters on assessment of authenticity, and several chapters on quality assessment using various methods, such as:Texture measurement Electronic nose and tongue NMR Colour measurement
This timely volume will serve as a vital tool for all those working in the processing of fishery and aquaculture products: including laboratory personnel working in regulatory bodies, food quality control personnel, food scientists, food technologists, nutritionists, seafood trade bodies, seafood labelling regulatory bodies, government food protection agencies and environmental health personnel. Libraries in research establishments and universities where food science, food technology, nutrition, aquaculture, fisheries and biological sciences are studied and taught should have copies of this important publication on their shelves.
This important book comprises the proceedings of The International Symposium on Integrated Coastal Zone Management, which took place in Arendal, Norway between 11-14 June 2007. The main objective of the Symposium was to present current knowledge and to address issues on advice and management related to the coastal zone. The major themes of papers included in this book are:Coastal habitats Impacts on coastal systems Integrated Coastal Zone Management Coastal governance
Comprising a huge wealth of information, this timely and well edited volume is essential reading for all those involved in coastal zone management around the globe. All libraries in research establishments and universities where fisheries and aquatic sciences are studied and taught will need copies of this important volume on their shelves.
