Governance of Marine Fisheries and Biodiversity Conservation
explores governance of the world s oceans with a focus on the
impacts of two inter-connected but historically separate streams of
governance: one for fisheries, the other for biodiversity
conservation. Chapters, most co-authored by leading experts from
both streams, investigate the interaction of these governance
streams from ecological, economic, social and legal perspectives,
with emphasis on policies, institutions processes, and outcomes on
scales from the global to the local community, and with coverage of
a range of themes and regions of the world. The book opens with
chapters setting the historical context for the two marine
governance streams, and framing the book s exploration of whether,
as the streams increasingly interact, there will be merger or
collision, convergence or co-evolution. The concluding chapter
synthesizes the insights from throughout the book, relative to the
questions posed in the opening chapters. It also draws conclusions
about future needs and directions in the governance of marine
fisheries and biodiversity, vital to the future of the world s
oceans. With cutting edge chapters written by many leading
international experts in fisheries management and biodiversity
conservation, and edited by three leading figures in this crucially
important subject, Governance of Marine Fisheries and Biodiversity
Conservation is an essential purchase for fisheries scientists,
economists, resource managers and policymakers, and all those
working in fields of biodiversity conservation, marine ecology, and
coastal livelihoods. Libraries in all universities and research
establishments where environmental and/or marine studies,
conservation, ocean policy and law, biological and life sciences,
and fisheries management are studied and taught, should have copies
of this most important book.
